Connor Thomas Green

    Welcome! I'm a mechanical engineer fueled by a passion for innovation and performance. A proud graduate of Harvard with an S.B. in Mechanical Engineering, my interests span beyond academia into product design, composite part production, and the intricate realms of watchmaking and micromechanics.


    Post-graduation, my love for outdoor sports and adventure led me to Norway's Olympic city of Lillehammer, where I now reside. During my university years, I captained the ski team, shaping my leadership and teamwork skills while nurturing an unwavering pursuit of excellence.


    In Norway, I merge my professional expertise with my love for exploration, embracing the thrilling convergence of engineering, design, and outdoor pursuits. Join me as I navigate this dynamic space, fusing innovation, creativity, and a relentless drive for excellence.

Carbon Fiber Electric Guitar Neck

    For my senior design thesis, I developed and manufactured a carbon fiber electric guitar neck. The project aimed to eliminate the need for a truss rod while ensuring consistent stability under varying humidity and temperature conditions, crucial for touring guitarists. Achieving this involved selecting carbon fiber and epoxy with complementary properties, resulting in a composite part with an almost zero coefficient of thermal expansion.


    The guitar construction employed a two-stage process: the structural body of the neck underwent vacuum bagging, while the fretboard underwent compression molding. The molds, interestingly, were 3D printed, which became an additional focus of the thesis. The core was CNC machined from a foam core material.

Customized Rifle Parts

    Combining my passion for elite-level sport and composite part production, I've designed and manufactured components for a World Cup athlete's biathlon rifle, enhancing shooting accuracy consistency while significantly reducing weight—crucial factors in optimizing biathlon performances.


    Most of these components were produced with a compression molding process using 3D printed molds. However, certain user interface components, like the hand stopper, were directly 3D printed due to their lower strength requirements.


    In total, I achieved a 12% reduction in the rifle's weight, however, the rifle hovered just above the 3.5kg minimum weight threshold, eliminating the necessity for further weight optimization. These substantial weight reductions not only led to improved ski speed but also, concurrently, the ergonomic enhancements contributed to enhancing shooting accuracy.
