Micah J. Green received his bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering at Texas Tech in 2002. He then entered the Chemical Engineering Ph.D. program at MIT where he was co-advised by National Academy members Bob Armstrong and Bob Brown. His Ph.D. focused on computational studies of phase behavior and rheology of rodlike liquid crystals; his studies also included a minor in early Christian history at Harvard. After finishing his Ph.D. in 2007, he developed nanotube-based liquid crystals and fibers as an Attwell-Welch Postdoctoral Fellow at Rice University.
After several years on the faculty at Texas Tech, he joined Texas A&M as an Associate Professor in the Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering in Summer 2014. He has received the NSF CAREER Award, the Young Investigator Award from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, and the DuPont Young Faculty Award for his work in the area of nanomaterial dispersions and morphology dynamics, with applications to gels, composites, and additive manufacturing. His group combines experiment and simulation to bring the fields of chemical engineering, colloid science, and polymer physics to bear on critical nanotechnology applications.
Additionally, Dr. Green is the current president of the Christian Faculty Network at Texas A&M and also serves as faculty advisor to several student organizations, including Navigators, Ratio Christi, and Fellowship of Christian Grads. He has served as a frequent speaker for student groups, universities, and churches on topics such as nanotechnology, climate change, and the relationship between faith and science.
