Biography: 

Trey has a wide range of accomplishments in academia and research, both as an undergraduate student at the University of Flordia (UF) and as a first year graduate student at Oregon State University (OSU). Trey completed his bachelor degree at UF majoring in chemical engineering, where he also completed minors in physics and business administration. At UF Trey worked as an undergraduate research assistant, a general chemistry tutor, and completed a summer internship with KMCO Inc. all while maintaining cum laude status. Trey was accepted into the University Scholars program for undergraduate researchers at UF during his junior year, where he performed research in Prof. Jason Weaver’s group until graduation. He primarily performed research on thin film metal oxides (e.g., palladium oxide) and studied their reactivity with adsorbates, including carbon monoxide, nitric oxide, and propane. This research led to three co-authored peer-reviewed publications. Trey is currently in the PhD program and OSU and is a graduate research assistant in Prof. Greg Herman’s group. Throughout his time as a graduate student, Trey has become proficient at using multiple surface characterization techniques, including temperature programed desorption, electron stimulated desorption, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Much of his research includes the characterization and analysis of inorganic photoresists, with a focus on understanding radiation induced reaction mechanisms. In the future, Trey plans on applying these and other surface characterization methods (e.g., scanning tunneling microscopy) to study surface chemistries and determine detailed reaction mechanisms.
