Professor, Comm. Sci. & Disorders
Director, Speech and Feeding Disorders Lab

Dr. Green, who has been at the MGH Institute since 2013, is a speech-language pathologist who studies biological aspects of speech production. He teaches graduate courses on speech physiology; and the neural basis of speech, language, and hearing. He is Director of the Speech and Feeding Disorders Lab (SFDL) at the Institute.

His research focuses on disorders of speech production, oromotor skill development for early speech and feeding, and quantification of speech motor performance. This work has been supported by the National Institute of Health since 1993, private foundations, and corporations. His research has been published in national and international journals including Child Development, Journal of Neurophysiology, Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, and the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America.

He has served on multiple grant review panels at the National Institutes of Health. In 2012, he was appointed as a Fellow of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Dr. Green earned his PhD in 1998 from the University of Washington, Seattle.
