Presenter Bio

Johney Green, Jr., is the Director of the Energy and Transportation Science Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. ETSD develops and deploys technology that enables America to achieve energy independence and security, global economic leadership, and environmental sustainability. ETSD R&D spans a wide variety of research missions, including building technologies, sustainable industry and manufacturing; fuels, engines, and emissions, transportation analysis, and vehicle systems integration. Prior to assuming his current position, Johney was the Group Leader of the Fuels, Engines, and Emissions Research Group, which specializes in the detailed characterization of internal combustion engines.

Dr. Green joined Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 1995, conducting automotive research focused on engine and vehicle experiments. During the course of that research, he joined a team working with the Ford Motor Company, seeking ways to extend exhaust gas recirculation limits in diesel engines to simultaneously reduce nitrogen oxide and particulate matter emissions.  He continued this 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.  He earned his bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Memphis and his master’s and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology.

In 2003 Dr. Green completed a year-long off-site assignment in Washington, D.C., at the Department of Energy’s Office of Vehicle Technologies, serving as technical coordinator for the 21st Century Truck Partnership. Johney has received several awards during his career and holds two U.S. patents in combustion science.
