- Ph.D. 1994, Penn State University
- Postdoctoral Fellow 1994-1996, Johns Hopkins University
Professor Steven Frey's research group has two main interests. The first is to produce composites by immobilizing metal ions, metal complexes, or biological molecules on solid-state materials. Applications of these composite materials include catalysis, optical information storage, and the detoxification of environmental pollutants. The second is in the synthesis of transition metal complexes as models for the active site centers of metalloenzymes. 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.
