Dr. Paul Green is Senior Research Scientist in the Human Factors Division at the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute and an Adjunct Associate Professor of Industrial and Operations Engineering (and Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics). He has a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering (Drexel University, 1972, Philadelphia, PA-where he grew up), and three degrees from The University of Michigan (M.S.E. - Industrial and Operations Engineering - 1974; M.A. - Psychology - 1979; joint Ph.D. - Industrial & Operations Engineering and Psychology - 1979).

Paul has been an engineering staff member at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard and a safety and health engineer for Scovill. In addition to his current positions at Michigan, he has also held appointments in the Psychology and Mechanical Engineering Departments, as well as the School of Art (Industrial Design).

His research has concerned motor vehicle controls and displays, and person-computer interaction. Much of his current work relates to automotive navigation systems for cars of the future, research that makes extensive use of instrumented cars and a driving simulator. He is a member of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, the Ergonomics Society, the Society of Automotive Engineers, the Association for Computing Machinery, the ITS- America Safety and Human Factors Committee, and other organizations.
