He is an associate professor in climate, natural resources and policy in the University of Arizona’s School of Natural Resources and the Environment, and deputy director for science translation and outreach in the University’s Institute of the Environment. Beginning with his CLIMAS investigations and outreach, he has worked for the last 17 years to bridge the science-society interface through dialogues between scientists and decision makers and collaborative projects that require environmental and climate science findings, data, and information. His research focuses on climate variability and change, drought, and adaptation to a changing climate.

At the University of Arizona, Gregg serves as Director of the Water, Society & Policy M.S. program, in the School of Natural Resources and the Environment. He is university director of the Southwest Climate Science Center. He directs the Art + Environment + Humanities Network, within the Institute of the Environment. He also serves on the faculty advisory board for the University of Arizona's Center for Compassion Studies.

His CLIMAS-related activities focus on development of experimental climate services, climate adaptation planning, science-society partnerships to reduce climate-related vulnerabilities and increase resilience, and the development of knowledge-to-action networks among resource management practitioners and researchers.
