Greg is an environmental economist specialising in payments for ecosystem services, individual decision making, non-market valuation, and experimental and behavioural economics.

Greg recently completed his PhD at the Centre for Social and Economic Research on the Global Environment (CSERGE) at the University of East Anglia. His research examined, through the quantitative techniques of environmental economics (econometrics, modelling and experiments), the allocation problems with agri-environmental schemes (in particular payments for ecosystem services schemes) and the role of individual decision-maker uncertainty in the valuation of ecosystem services.

He has worked on Defra funded projects investigating paying for environmental goods and services; including the Fowey River Improvement Auction and scoping the potential for auctions within the new Countryside Stewardship scheme. 

In addition, he is currently working on the Metaldehyde Reduction Scheme: "Slug It Out", for Anglian Water and a scoping study on valuing the social and environmental benefits of trees and woodlands in England, Scotland and Wales for the Forestry Commission.
