GIS Analyst I

Brandon Bush is a GIS Analyst I working on the Maryland Highway Safety Office grant at Washington College. He is a 2020 graduate of the University of Maryland’s Department of Geographical Sciences; holding a Bachelor of Science with a concentration in Geospatial Information Science. He also has a minor in Meteorology.

Brandon’s experience stems from his two internships, school events and coursework. His first internship was located in College Park, MD at the Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center, where he applied GIS principles to weather to analyze both satellite and rain gauge data. His second internship focused more on his Atmospheric Science background and took place at Earth Networks in Germantown, MD. There, he forecasted the weather for high profile clientele including Disney World, Baltimore Gas & Electric, and Broward county, Florida. At the University of Maryland, he would participate in the University of Maryland Data Challenge with a team of three colleagues, using his GIS/Cartography skills to create maps of air pollution data provided by Booz Allen Hamilton.

In this new role, Brandon will put his skills to use in an effort to provide meaningful analysis to the MHSO and to guide the student interns along the right path toward a greater understanding of GIS.
