Harold Greene is a Professor of Psychology. He obtained a B. A. (Hons) from Queen's University, Canada, and an MS and a Ph.D. in Cognitive/Experimental psychology from the University of Georgia. Before coming to the University of Detroit Mercy, Greene held research fellowships at the Center of Excellence for Research on Training (CERT) in Atlanta, and at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He teaches Perception/Cognitive psychology, Experimental psychology, and Learning & Memory.

His research interests are generally aimed at determining functional organizations in the human visual system. One concern is the visual system's representation of contours. Another is the representation of mechanisms involved in the search for a target object among irrelevant clutter. Research of this sort constrain theories of vision, and have real-life implications. Greene joined the Detroit Mercy faculty in 1999.
