    Dr. Charles Greene received his PhD in Oceanography from the University of Washington in 1985 and spent a year as a postdoctoral fellow at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution(WHOI). In 1986, he joined the faculty at Cornell where he served originally as Director of the Biological Resources Program and subsequently as Director of the Ocean Resources & Ecosystems Program. Dr. Greene’s research interests range from the ecological dynamics of marine animal populations to the effects of global climate change on ocean ecosystems. During recent years, he has led international research efforts focused on growing marine microalgae to develop sustainable solutions to the global challenges of climate, energy, and food security. Dr. Greene combines his research and educational interests in ocean science and technology by promoting innovative training opportunities for undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral students. Since 1993, he has organized 30 courses in marine bioacoustics, including seven at Friday Harbor Laboratories, which have trained over 325 students from 33 countries. Dr. Greene is a Fellow of the Oceanography Society and a Sustaining Fellow of the Association for Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography.
