**Curtis Greene** is an American mathematician, specializing in algebraic combinatorics. He is the J. McLain King Professor of Mathematics at Haverford College in Pennsylvania.^{[1]}

Greene did his undergraduate studies at Harvard University, and earned his Ph.D. in 1969 from the California Institute of Technology under the supervision of Robert P. Dilworth.^{[1]}^{[2]} He held positions at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Pennsylvania before moving to Haverford.

Greene has written highly cited research papers on Sperner families,^{[3]} Young tableaux,^{[4]} and combinatorial equivalences between hyperplane arrangements, zonotopes, and graph orientations.^{[5]} With Daniel Kleitman, he has also written a highly cited survey paper on combinatorial proof techniques.^{[6]}

In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.^{[7]}
