Biography: 

Matthew Green is currently an Associate Professor with tenure within Chemical Engineering at ASU. He joined the faculty at ASU in 2014 as an assistant professor. His research is focused on the design and synthesis of novel, ion-containing polymers to be used in applications such as water purification, carbon dioxide capture, nanocomposites, and micellar solution assemblies. He obtained bachelor’s degrees in chemical engineering and chemistry (2007), and a doctorate in chemical engineering at Virginia Tech working with Prof. Timothy Long (2011). Then, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Delaware in the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department with professors Thomas Epps, III and Millicent Sullivan.

Education: 
  • Ph.D. Chemical Engineering, Virginia Tech 2011
  • B.S. Chemistry, Virginia Tech 2007
  • B.S. Chemical Engineering, Virginia Tech 2007
Research Interests: 

We are focused on integrating macromolecular design with controlled synthesis techniques to produce hierarchical and multifunctional materials. In particular, we are interested in understanding the interplay between electrostatic or Coulombic interactions and microstructure, inter-phase interactions, thermomechanical properties, and transport. Our current research thrusts include: 1) designing chlorine-tolerant, fouling-resistant membranes for osmotically driven water purification and supported ionic liquid membranes for CO2 capture, 2) developing innovative matrix chemistries and stimuli-responsive behavior for epoxy thermosets and nanocomposites, 3) analyzing the ability of phase-separated ionomers to template nanoparticle location, 4) directing the solution assembly of amphiphilic ionomers and controlling functional group presentation on their surfaces, 5) tailoring the surface activity of electrospun fibers and silicone surfactants, and 6) studying the polymer microphase separation of ion-containing block polymers.
