Dr. Frey’s research concerns robust design of engineering systems. Robust design is a set of engineering practices whose aim is to ensure that engineering systems function despite variations due to manufacture, wear, deterioration, and environmental conditions.

Prof. Frey has received numerous awards and honors. These include the Junior Bose Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2006, a best paper award from INCOSE in 2005, an NSF CAREER award in 2004; the MIT Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics Teaching Award in 2000; the Everett Moore Baker Memorial Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching at MIT in 1999; and an R&D 100 Award in 1997. He also received the Joint Service Commendation Medal for his service in the armed forces in 1991.

Prof. Frey is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the American Statistical Association (ASA), the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), and the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE). He holds a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from MIT, an MS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Colorado and a BS in Aeronautical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
