Stephen McKnight received a B.S. in Physics from Oberlin College in 1969 and a Ph.D. in Experimental Solid State Physics from the University of Maryland at College Park in 1976. His thesis work was on "Far-Infrared Cyclotron Resonance in Semiconducting PbTe". From 1976 to 1978 he was a Research Associate at Emory University in Atlanta and in 1978 he was awarded a National Research Council Post-doctoral Fellowship at the Naval Research laboratory. From 1980 to 1985 he held an Assistant Professor position in the Dept. of Physics at Northeastern University and was a Principal Investigator of research projects on "Far-Infrared High-Pressure Studies of Narrow-gap Semiconductors" (funded by ONR) and "Optical Properties of Metallic Glasses" (funded by the AFOSR).

In 1985 he became a Senior Scientist in the Center for Electromagnetics Research and Adjunct Professor of Electrical Engineering at Northeastern University and in 1988 was appointed Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering. His research in this period has included projects on submillimeter exchange resonance (funded by ONR) and ferromagnetic resonance of exchange-coupled magnetic multilayers. He has published over 28 articles in refereed journals, over 30 abstracts and contributed papers, and has delivered 11 invited papers and seminars. He is a member of the American Physical Society and the IEEE (Society on Magnetics).
