Career

Dr. Chris Greene comes to the University of St. Thomas following a 20+ year career in industry.  His experiences have included doing research in controlling aircraft and spacecraft and applied adaptive estimation  to the detection of accidents on freeways and to navigation system development.  He has worked for a variety of companies including Honeywell's Systems and Research Center and later their Avionics Division.  Following a brief period at Diversified Technology Systems where he directed the development of automated semiconductor processing equipment, he went to work for Horton Inc (later know as Nexen Group Inc) where he became the Product Manager for all their industrial products. 

His interests include applying PC-based control solutions to industrial control problems.  He teaches various Electrical Engineering courses including Control Systems and Automation, Signals and Systems and Electronics.
