Professor of chemical engineering
areas of expertise: fuels, biofuels, combustion, chemical kinetics
William Green earned his PhD in experimental physical chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley in 1988, working with C. Bradley Moore. He did postdoctoral research in theoretical chemistry at Cambridge University, where he was named the Charles and Katherine Darwin Research Fellow by Darwin College.
After a short postdoctoral fellowship with Marsha Lester at the University of Pennsylvania, he took a research staff position at Exxon Research and Engineering in 1991. In 1997, he joined the MIT chemical engineering faculty. He received tenure in 2004 and was promoted to professor in 2007. He is also the editor of the International Journal of Chemical Kinetics.
Green is a world leader in computer methods for predicting the rates and products of complicated chemically reacting systems, including fuel and combustion chemistry. He has won several awards for research and teaching, and has twice received the American Chemical Society's Glenn Award in Fuel Chemistry (in 2004 and 2009).
