Greenfield, PhD, was educated in Florida and North Carolina, earning his undergraduate degree in biology from New College of Florida and master’s and doctoral degrees in marine biology and biomineralization, respectively, from the University of the North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

He completed further post-doctoral studies at Washington University in St. Louis before joining the faculty at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland in the 1990s, where he remained before moving to Indianapolis in 2019 to take a position in Indiana University School of Medicine.
