Greg is a second-year PhD student in the Strategy Department, researching business opportunities at the Base of the Pyramid. He focuses on issues surrounding energy poverty, the interactions between Multinational Enterprises (MNEs) and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), and how organizations negotiate the trade-offs they face as they encounter constraints. Greg's experiences in emerging economies led him to this field. As an undergraduate, Greg studied in Mexico, where he saw the Base of the pyramid in living color. Later, as a young professional, he helped open international call centers in India and South Africa, and again encountered the Base of the Pyramid, this time seeing first-hand the trade-offs his Fortune 50 employer made as it navigated the realities of each country. In addition to these endeavours, Greg also has over 10 years experience in project and program management at a Fortune 50 media and entertainment company, an energy company, a hospital, and a research university.
