Originally from Vancouver, Canada, Prof. Green began his scientific career as an undergraduate in Chemistry at Simon Fraser University (BS 1997), where he did work in both organometallic synthesis and in the conformational analysis of carbohydrates. He then moved to Cambridge, MA for graduate school in Biological Chemistry at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (PhD 2002), where his focus switched to computational biophysics; his thesis work was built around applications of a novel affinity optimization scheme based in continuum electrostatic theory. Following graduation, he remained at M.I.T. as a post-doctoral associate in the Biological Engineering Division and the Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Lab. His post-doctoral work shifted focus to problems of protein design, particularly to the engineering of protein complexes with desired affinities and specificities. Since 2005, he has been a Professor of Applied Mathematics & Statistics at Stony Brook University (State University of New York) on Long Island. He is a member of the Laufer Center for Quantitative and Physical Biology, and has additional affiliations with the Departments of Chemistry and Physiology & Biophysics and the Graduate Program in Biochemistry and Structural Biology. His current work is targeted in a general sense towards developing methods for the rational engineering of protein complexes for functions in complex biological systems. Two specific areas of interest include methods of modeling and design of mixed protein–carbohydrate systems and developing an understanding of both the mechanisms and consequences of differential specificities in protein complex formation. His group applies a wide range of approaches: molecular dynamics simulation; continuum electrostatic analysis; computational protein design; dynamic modeling of signaling networks; and experimental protein chemistry.
