Greg has worked as a Fishery Biologist with the Habitat and Population Evaluation Team of the CRFPO since the fall of 2003. Greg's work is primarily focused on studying the biology and ecology of Pacific and Western brook lampreys in the Columbia River Basin.

Before joining the CRFPO, Greg worked on a variety of management and monitoring studies in Oregon and California. He has experience working with many aquatic species including fish, macroinvertebrates and amphibians. Most recently, Greg worked for the Oregon Dept. of Environmental Quality Lab where he was involved with water quality monitoring and investigations of mercury contamination in Willamette River Basin fish. Greg spent 3 years working for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the California Dept. of Fish and Game in Central California. There, he monitored juvenile salmonid migration through the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and conducted a diet and population study of Delta resident fish.
