Tanja Greene joined Marian University in the fall of 2017 and currently serves as an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering and as the Director for Community Outreach for the E.S. Witchger School of Engineering. During her master studies, she
investigated the influence of microenvironments on cell-fate processes through the encapsulation of cells within chemically modified, biomimetic hydrogels and was awarded the Distinguished Master’s Thesis Award by the university’s graduate
office for her work. After graduating, she continued her research in a tissue engineering/ biomaterials laboratory until accepting a position at Marian University. She currently teaches Physics I, Physics II, Biophysics, and courses related to biomaterials. In addition to teaching, Tanja also plays a large role in the community outreach of WSOE through directing events such as the Central Indiana Regional Science and Engineering Fair and the
annual Innovation Through Engineering Residential Summer Camp. Through her efforts, Ms. Greene enjoys creating inclusive environments where students feel supported while exploring STEM related topics. Tanja is also an active member of the prestigious
national engineering honor society, Tau Beta Pi, and serves as an advisor for a local university’s chapter.
