Gregory Barord Saving a Living Fossil: Underwater video observations of the chambered nautilus and its habitat.
Greg completed his B.S. in Marine Biology and a minor in Chemistry at Texas A&M University at Galveston from 2001-2005. While in Galveston, Greg also worked at the National Resource Center for Cephalopods (NRCC) from[masked] and in the quarantine facility at the Aquarium at Moody Gardens from 2006-2008. In an entirely different direction, Greg worked on fishing boats in the Bering Sea from 2008-2011. Currently, Greg is a Ph.D. Candidate at the City University of New York, Graduate Center and Brooklyn College, working with the chambered nautilus. His work focuses on the learning and memory abilities of the chambered nautilus in laboratory trials but he is also working with a team of nautilus researchers on field studies to determine the sustainability of nautilus fisheries throughout the Indo-Pacific due to declining populations and constant unregulated fishing pressures.
