Kayla N. Green received her B.S. degree from Tarleton State University in 2003. She obtained her Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry from Texas A&M University in 2008 under the direction of Marcetta Y. Darensbourg, where she studied immobilized biomimetic complexes of metalloenzymes such as Acetyl CoA Synthase. While there, she was honored with the U.S. Senator Phil Gramm Doctoral Fellowship Award (2007) and a Chemistry Biology Interface - NIH Training Grant (2004). In 2008, she began her postdoctoral work at UT Southwestern Medical Center, Advanced Imaging Research Center for A. Dean Sherry. Her research focused on the synthesis of lanthanide complexes for molecular imaging using novel NMR techniques and the development of computational methods for the evaluation of these complexes. Kayla joined the faculty at TCU in the Fall of 2010 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2016. She was also recently recognized as an Emerging Investigator by the American Chemical Society (2015) and Journal of Coordination Chemistry (2016).
