Arthur M. Greene received his Ph.D. from Lamont-Doherty Earth
Observatory of Columbia University, where he studied the response of
mountain glaciers to changes in climate under the supervision of
advisor Wallace S. Broecker. He then spent a year as a visiting
researcher at the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de
L'Environnement in Gif-sur-Yvette, France, where he worked with
Nathalie de Noblet on the land-surface model ORCHIDEE. Subsequent to
this, and before arriving at the IRI, Greene served as science
consultant in the development of a web site for the Comer Science and
Before beginning his graduate studies at Lamont, Greene had been
working as a professional musician, principally in the domain of
Broadway musicals, where he served as both conductor and pianist. He
spent three years touring the United States as music director of the
show "Annie." He holds a Master of Arts in piano performance from
Stanford University, and studied piano with Mieczyslaw Munz at the
Juilliard School of Music. Greene also holds a Bachelor of Science in
Electrical Engineering from the Columbia University School of
Engineering and Applied Science.
