Professor Green completed his PhD at Stanford University in 2010, after which he came to the Triangle Area as a postdoctoral researcher at UNC – Chapel Hill. In 2013 he was named a Wigner Fellow at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), and in August of 2015 he joined the faculty at NCSU as an Assistant Professor with a joint appointment with ORNL. He is a member of NCSU’s Experimental Nuclear Physics Group, and the Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory (TUNL).
Area(s) of Expertise
Dr. Green’s work focuses on experimentally probing the properties and interactions of neutrinos, elementary particles lacking electric charge and of diminutive mass. Currently he is working with the Majorana Collaboration to build the MAJORANA DEMONSTRATOR. This experiment aims to observe Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay (0vBB), a nuclear decay which can only occur if neutrinos are their own anti-particle. He is also working with the COHERENT Collaboration to detect Coherent Elastic Neutrino Nucleus Scattering (CEvNS), an as-yet unobserved standard model process, using ORNL’s Spallation Neutron Source as a pulsed source of neutrinos.
