John (Jack) Drey is a sophomore biological sciences major interested in global health, international development, history, and climate change. He is working with Dr. Mark Golitko, studying long-term human response to environmental change in northern Papua New Guinea. They believe past changes in climate and environment, and how humans responded to those changes, could be relevant to what will be experienced in the near future as a result of current trends in climate change. In the future, Drey hopes to conduct research into environmental change and its implications, as well as exploring the social, political, and economic challenges of healthcare, both in the United States and abroad.
