Glenn E. Futrell Distinguished University Professor
H. Christopher Frey is a professor of environmental engineering in the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at NC State. His research interests are measurement and modeling of real-world fuel use and emissions of onroad and nonroad vehicles; modeling and evaluation of advanced energy conversion (e.g., combustion, gasification) and environmental control systems; development and application of methods for quantification of variability and uncertainty and for sensitivity analysis in environmental systems models; and exposure and risk analysis.
Dr. Frey was Chair of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC) from 2012 to 2015. He chaired CASAC review panels on ozone, nitrogen dioxide, and lead. He currently serves on CASAC review panels for particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide, and sulfur dioxide. He is a member of the U.S. EPA Science Advisory Board and an advisory committee on EPA’s “MOVES” vehicle emission factor model. In recent years, he has served on the Board of Environmental Studies and Toxicology of the National Research Council, an EPA Science Advisory Board panel on expert elicitation, National Research Council committees on review of the toxicological assessment of tetrachloroethylene and of EPA’s New Source Review program, a NARSTO assessment of multipollutant air quality management, and a World Health Organization working group on uncertainty in exposure assessment. He was a lead author for 2006 guidance by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) regarding uncertainty in greenhouse gas emission inventories.
Dr. Frey is a Fellow and Past President of the Society for Risk Analysis and a Fellow of the Air & Waste Management Association. Recent awards include a 2008 NCSU Alumni Association Outstanding Research Award, 2008 Mobile Clean Air and Renewable Energy Award, the 2009 Earthwise Faculty Award, and the 2012 Lyman A. Ripperton Environmental Educator Award of the A&WMA. Dr. Frey has a B.S. Mechanical Engineering from the University of Virginia, and from Carnegie Mellon University he has a Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering and PhD in Engineering and Public Policy.
