Christine M. Greene, Ph.D.

Dr. Christine Greene is a technical specialist with hands-on experience in bioinorganic chemistry, organic synthesis, computational theory, and analytical techniques. As part of the Intellectual Property practice, Christine supports clients in patent prosecution, freedom to operate and patentability analysis. In her previous role as a graduate researcher for Georgetown University, she investigated the central role of organocopper(II) intermediates in C-C and C-O bond transformations. She provided key leadership in her laboratory’s response to COVID-19 by directing computational work for her team, leading to research continuity and new funding.

While serving as an undergraduate researcher at Stetson University, Christine independently researched zinc-ligand complexes with ethylene. Her work involved the application of computational chemistry methods, and examination of the electrophilic activation and bonding interactions of zinc, cadmium and mercury-ligand complexes with ethylene.
