Greg began his academic career studying Electrical Engineering, where he received formal training in computer logic and computer programming (e.g., C/C++, Java, Visual Basic). Greg obtained a BSc in  Geographic Information Systems at California State Polytechnic University (2008), including minors in Anthropology and Interdisciplinary GIS Applications. After moving to Canada in 2009, he obtained an MSc in Fire Ecology from the University of British Columbia (2011). Greg is currently a PhD Candidate in the Tree-Ring Lab at UBC, studying Fire Ecology. His dissertation work examines the combined effects of fire exclusion and forest management practices on the resilience of dry forest ecosystems.


Greg's work-related interests include:  Ecosystem Restoration, Fuel Hazard Assessment & Abatement, Disturbance & Landscape Ecology, Dendrochronology, GIS application  development (Python and ArcPad Objects), Project development, Work-flow analysis, and GIS database management.
