Professor-Melissa-Green-in-Lab_CropProfessor Melissa Green’s research interests include vortex-dominated wakes generated by swimming offlying of animals and the coherent structure composition of reacting and non-reacting turbulent flow fields. Increased understanding of how these flows are organized can lead to advances in basic research, model development for flow simulation, dynamics and control plus improvements in existing technology. In order to investigate these flows, Dr. Green integrates quantitative and qualitative experimental techniques with comprehensive data analysis such as Lagrangian coherent structures identification.

Green earned her Ph.D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University, and her BS in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Notre Dame. Prior to joining the faculty of Syracuse University in 2012, Professor Green was an NRC Postdoctoral Research Associate at the US Naval Research Laboratory. In 2014, she was the recipient of the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research Young Investigator Award.

TACNY John Edson Sweet Lecture Series

TACNY John Edson Sweet Lectures, a program founded in 1913, features discussions about topics in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in an informal atmosphere. A minimum of six free and open to the public Sweet Lectures are held each year.

Technology Alliance of Central New York

Founded in 1903 as the Technology Club of Syracuse, the nonprofit Technology Alliance of Central New York’s mission is to facilitate community awareness, appreciation, and education of technology; and to collaborate with like-minded organizations across Central New York.
