Dr. Johney Green graduated magna cum laude from the University of Memphis in 1992 with a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering.He received his Masters and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1993 and 2000, respectively.Dr. Green joined the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) as a full-time employee in June 1995 conducting research on cyclic variability in internal combustion engines.During the course of that research, in 1997, he joined a team working with the Ford Motor Company, seeking ways to extend exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) limits in diesel engines.The following year, he continued his research collaboration, working on-site at Ford's Scientific Research Laboratory on modeling and experimental research for advanced diesel engines designed for light-duty vehicles.In April 2003, Johney completed a one year off-site assignment with the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of FreedomCAR and Vehicle Technologies serving as technical coordinator for the 21st Century Truck Partnership, which seeks to develop advanced technologies for heavy-duty trucks and buses.Upon his return from that assignment, Dr. Green assumed responsibilities as the leader of ORNL's Fuels, Engines, and Emissions Research Center, which specializes in the detailed characterization of internal combustion engine efficiency and emissions.In addition to his responsibilities as leader of the Fuels, Engines, and Emissions Research Center, Johney also serves as the deputy program manager for ORNL's Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Research Activities.Dr. Green has received several awards during his career including being recognized as one of the 50 most important blacks in research science, according to the September 2004 issue of Science Spectrum magazine, a DOE award for inter-lab teaming between ORNL and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in May 2004, the Black Engineer of the Year Award in the Category of Outstanding GEM Alumnus in February 2000, an ORNL Significant Event Award for "Breakthrough Research in Diesel Engine Emissions Control" in September 2000, and an ORNL Technical Achievement Award in 1998.
