Dan Green is a Senior Scientist at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, where he worked for more than 30 years. Recently he has conducted experimental research with the CMS experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. He served as U.S. CMS Program Manager from 1996 to 2007 and Chair of the CMS Collaboration from 2009-2010. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Rochester in 1969. He is an APS Fellow and is cited in American Men and Women of Science and Who’s Who in America.

While a Fermilab employee he was the author of three books and the editor of two others:

“Physics at Fermilab in the 1990’s” Ed. by Dan Green and Henry Lubatti, World Scientific, 1990.

“Lectures in Particle Physics”, World Scientific, 1994.

“The Physics of Particle Detectors”, Cambridge Press, 2000.

“High Pt Hadron Collider Physics”, Cambridge Press, 2005

“At the Leading Edge, the ATLAS and CMS LHC Experiments”, Ed. By Dan Green, World Scientific (2010)

Since becoming an Emeritus physicist Dan has taught at UIC and published a series of books about using MATLAB to visualize the dynamics of physical processes:

“One Hundred Physics Visualizations Using MATLAB”, World Scientific, 2014

“More Physics with MATLAB”, World Scientific, 2015

“Cosmology with MATLAB”, World Scientific, 2016

“Beams and Accelerators with MATLAB”, World Scientific, 2018

“Stars and Space with MATLAB Apps”, World Scientific, 2020

“The Physics of Experiment Instrumentation Using MATLAB Apps”, World Scientific, 2021

He continues to work on vector boson scattering in CMS, radiation damage in scintillator, and a proposed search for long lived particles at the LHC.
