As part of the Department of Modern Prints and Drawings, he co-curated Yes, No, Maybe: Artists Working at Crown Point Press (2013).

Greenhalgh completed his doctoral degree in the Department of Art History & Archaeology at the University of Maryland, College Park, in 2011. His dissertation, "Risky Business: Chance and Contingency in American Art around 1900," was supported by fellowships from the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Henry Luce Foundation, among others. He has published on American art in a number of journals and exhibition and collection catalogues and has worked at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute and the Corcoran Gallery of Art.
