Martin Green

Polytechnic Alumni Association - International Board of Directors (Term ending August 31, 2023)

Dr. Martin L. Green (Marty) received degrees from the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn, now known as the NYU Tandon School Engineering, in 1970 (B.S., Metallurgical Engineering) and in 1972 (M.S., Physical Metallurgy).  In 1977 he received his Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Materials Science).

Marty spent most of his career (1970-1974 and 1978-2003) as a research scientist at Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, New Jersey, where he led research projects in the application of novel materials and processing for integrated circuit scaling and production. Between 2001 and 2003, he was a guest researcher at IMEC (Interuniversity MicroElectronics Center) in Leuven, Belgium.

From 2003 to the present, Marty has worked at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Maryland, as leader of the Materials for Energy and Sustainable Development Group. His group conducts research and develops and disseminates measurement science, data, standards, and technology pertaining to materials for energy and sustainable development applications, in partnership with U.S. industry, government agencies, and industry stakeholders. His group’s most current interest is in the application of artificial intelligence to the field of materials science.

Marty served as President of the Materials Research Society (MRS) in 2001 and is an MRS Fellow. He has authored/co-authored over 225 papers and 10 books and has been granted 16 patents.

He has 50 years of experience in the field of Materials Science, during which he has been involved in fundamental research, research management, product development, manufacturing, and public outreach. He firmly believes that materials are “technology enablers” and therefore a sine qua non for our modern world. As an alumnus, he hopes to engage with Tandon/Poly alumni, as well as be a mentor to current students, to give back to the Tandon/Poly community by sharing his experiences and perspectives. His goal is to enable young people to have joyful, meaningful, and fulfilling careers in science and technology. Further, because Marty had a wonderful experience at Poly, he wants to make sure that NYU Tandon continues to excel.
