About Greg


Greg is a staff scientist in the Materials Sciences Division and the Advanced Light Source at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Greg grew up in Massachusetts and obtained his B.S. in chemical engineering from UMass Amherst in 2010. He was first introduced to the exciting world of polymers through his undergraduate research on tuning polymer adhesion with functionalized nanoparticles in Al Crosby's group in the Polymer Science & Engineering Department. Greg then moved to California to pursue his PhD in the Materials Department at UC Santa Barbara with Prof. Michael Chabinyc and the late Prof. Ed Kramer. His graduate research focused on elucidating connections among chemistry, morphology, and transport in thin film organic electronics. After graduate school, Greg was a postdoctoral research fellow at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in the Chemical Sciences Division and the Advanced Light Source where he studied nanoscale morphology in ion-conducting polymer membranes and gas adsorption mechanisms in nanoporous frameworks. In addition to science, Greg enjoys the outdoors, particularly rock climbing in areas like Bishop and Tahoe, practicing the piano, and cooking.
