Greg began his career by obtaining his BSc (Hons) in Forensic and Environmental Analysis at Dublin Institute of Technology, which led to him working in the pharmaceutical industry in both quality control and environmental, health & safety laboratories. Greg then went on to gain his MSc in Forensic Science at University of Strathclyde’s renowned Centre for Forensic Science. As part of the course, Greg completed a project in conjunction with the Forensic Science Laboratory of Ireland,
researching the use of Raman spectroscopy for the identification of potential bodily fluid stains at a crime scene.
Following the completion of his MSc, Greg worked as a researcher in the University’s Centre for Forensic Science for a number of years. During this time, he worked on a variety of projects, with the main focus of his research being around method development for the detection of trace levels of drugs of abuse and explosives.
On returning to Ireland, Greg joined a large loss adjusting firm where he worked for over three years. Initially working as a desktop claims handler and then as a property loss adjuster he has gained an excellent understanding of the insurance industry, of policy wordings, claims management and loss adjusting. This experience gave him first-hand knowledge of what a loss adjuster requires from their appointed forensic expert.
Greg has completed a number of fire investigation courses in Ireland, the U.K. and U.S.A.
Greg is a Certified Insurance Practitioner (CIP) as well as a member of both the Fire Investigators Association of Ireland (FIAI) and the International Association of Arson Investigators (IAAI).
Greg is certified as a Fire Investigation Technician with the IAAI. He is currently the only investigator in Ireland to have obtained the IAAI-FIT certification.
