Biography

Matthew Green obtained a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and a B.S. in Chemistry at Virginia Tech in 2007, and a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering in 2011 at Virginia Tech working with Prof. Timothy Long.  Then, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Delaware in the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department with Prof. Thomas Epps, III and Prof. Millicent Sullivan.  His research is focused on the design and synthesis of novel, ion-containing block copolymers to be used in materials ranging from membranes for water purification to biomedical immunostimulatory therapeutics.

Research Interests

Polymer design and synthesis, Ion-containing block copolymers, Water purification and desalination, Ion and water transport through polymer membranes, Drug and gene delivery, Polymer-based immunostimulatory cancer therapeutics
