Alabama A&M Alumna, Tuskegee Professor Hadiyah-Nicole Green: The Million-Dollar Physicist

When Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green receives invitations to be a guest speaker for professional groups, schools and nonprofit organizations, she almost never turns them down.

“Usually if there is an invitation to speak at a forum like that, I accept it because I feel like it’s a responsibility,” she said. “There are so few of us (black women in STEM fields) I don’t feel like I have the luxury to say I’m too busy.”

By many measures, Green has been extremely busy. One of fewer than 100 black female physicists in the country, she recently won a $1.1 million grant to further develop her patent-pending technology for using laser-activated nanoparticles to treat cancer.

  1. She is amazing and you go girl!!! Her work and speaking will definitely encourage other young black females to go into the STEM sciences.

  2. Cheese: why not ‘young physicists’ instead of black girlies? your racism overshadows your sincerity
