Gregor is a researcher and practitioner with a background in geography, regeneration and public health. His research interests include planning and the built environment, climate change, active travel, sport and volunteering. 

Gregor was involved in the evaluation of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games volunteer programme and the subsequent 2018 European Championships’ ‘Team 2018’ volunteer programme. He has also supported and led on research relating to climate change, community growing, active travel, the impact of the built environment on health and wellbeing and more recently the role of ‘place’ in shaping outcomes from Covid-19.

Current and future work will involve evaluating community-based initiatives and the public health implications of climate change for Glasgow.
