Freudenstein is Professor and Chair of Evolution, Ecology and Organismal Biology at Ohio State University.

“My research area is angiosperm systematics, and in particular I focus on the following topics: (1) Evolution of morphological characters and the use of developmental data in developing homology hypotheses. (2) Species definition and the interpretation of molecular and morphological patterns at the base of the systematic hierarchy and their biogeographic implications. (3) Development and understanding of new characters, both morphological and molecular, for systematic use. (4) Systematic theory,” says his website.
