Stacey F. Bent obtained a B.S. in chemical engineering from U.C.
Berkeley and a Ph.D. in chemistry from Stanford University. Following
postdoctoral work at AT&T Bell Laboratories, Stacey Bent joined the faculty
of the chemistry department at New York University in 1994, and moved
to Stanford University in 1998. Stacey Bent’s research is focused on
understanding surface and interfacial chemistry and materials synthesis,
and applying this knowledge to a range of problems in semiconductor processing,
nanotechnology, and sustainable energy. Her group currently studies new
materials and processes for nanoelectronics, next generation solar cells,
fuel cells and catalysts.
