He is a seasoned project caver, dedicating thousands of hours to exploring and studying large cave systems globally. His belief in the importance of caves for archeological, biological, andatmospheric research drives his pursuit of fundamental understanding of these natural resources.

Through a grant from the Cave Exploration Society and the Explorer’s Club, Lee-Gray is currently engaged in ground breaking research. His previous roles include working for the National Park Service on cave research, where he excelled as an expedition leader, surveyor, cartographer, and scientist. His experience also extends to professional research in Greenland, where he was part of an international expedition aboard the Swedish icebreaker Oden.

Holding degrees in geology, wilderness studies, and business management, Lee-Gray isalso a PhD candidate at Northeastern University. His focus is on system dynamics modelingin public policy, particularly in ocean policy.
