Lisa C. Greene

Director, Microanalytical Sciences


  • MS, Engineering, North Carolina State University
  • BS, Biology, Wofford College

Lisa Greene leads a group of microanalysts who use electron and optical microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and other techniques to characterize a wide range of manufactured products, natural materials, and particulate air pollutants to solve client problems associated with product contamination, corrosion, and defects; manufacturing; process control; and research and development. She has extensive experience in leading or supporting technical research projects funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), other federal and state government clients, and various commercial clients.

Since 2012, Ms. Greene has coordinated the execution of the vision for analytical sciences at RTI, leading a number of initiatives designed to foster collaboration, enhance marketing, and pursue additional work. She is looking to expand her experience in areas related to sustainable agriculture, agricultural emissions, pollution and exposure issues, and development of educational and professional development materials to disseminate best practices in those areas.

Ms. Greene has provided administrative oversight and technical support to proficiency testing programs for laboratories performing asbestos analysis by polarized light microscopy and transmission electron microscopy, including the National Institute of Standards and Technology, National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Programs for PLM and TEM laboratories, the U.S. Navy’s Asbestos Identification Proficiency Testing Program, and the American Industrial Hygiene Association’s Bulk Asbestos Proficiency Analytical Testing Program. She also provides oversight for proficiency testing programs in response to occupational exposure analytes, such as beryllium and environmental lead.
