Research interests

Gregory holds an STFC Ernest Rutherford Fellowship in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of St Andrews.  

Gregory's main research passion is stellar magnetism across the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram. His interests are mainly theoretical, although his work is often at the boundary between observation and theory. He has expertise in the study of low-mass and pre-main sequence stars, and high-energy emission from stellar coronae. Gregory's work tackles the questions of how stars are born and evolve, and how stellar activity influences exoplanets. Through his work on the final stages of the formation of newborn stars, Gregory is unveiling the history of the Sun during the earliest stages of the formation of the Solar System.

Previously, Gregory was a postdoctoral scholar at the California Institute of Technology, held a STFC Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Exeter, and was a research fellow at the University of St Andrews post-PhD. 

Teaching

In the academic year 2012-2013, Gregory gave 10 lectures on "Pre-Main Sequence Evolution" as part of the Contemporary Astrophysics course to final year MPhys students.
