Curriculum Vitae


Professor Frey’s research group is interested in the use of solid-state materials as substrates for the immobilization of metal ions, metal complexes, or biological molecules.  Applications of these composite materials include catalysis, chemical sensing, optical information storage, and the detoxification of environmental pollutants.  Prof. Frey has collaborated with numerous undergraduate students on research projects.  Students regularly present at regional and national conferences, and have been co-authors on publications.
