Expert Profile
Dr. Lee is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Construction Engineering (CECE) at the University of Central Florida (UCF). He received his Ph.D. in environmental engineering from The University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH in 2009. Before joining UCF, he was an ORISE postdoctoral research fellow at U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL), Cincinnati, OH. He obtained his B.S. in Environmental Engineering from Chonnam National University, Gwangju, Korea in 1996 and his M.S. in Environmental Engineering from Korea University, Seoul, Korea in 2001. For five years prior to continuing his education, he acquired practical experience working on various environmental engineering projects including water/wastewater treatment plant design, sanitary sewer distribution system modeling, and development of advanced water/wastewater treatment technologies in GS E&C Co. (Seoul, Korea). To date, his professional work and research has encompassed development and use of electrochemical microsensors for water quality monitoring, advanced water/wastewater treatment processes, and bioenergy production using organic wastes. He developed various electrochemical microsensors for biofilm and biocorrosion study and for in situ monitoring in aqueous systems such as phosphate, nitrite, PAHs, and monochloramine microsensors. His current research interests include micro/nanosensors for in situ biofilm and water quality monitoring, nitrification and biocorrosion in water distribution systems, electrocoagulation for emulsion breaking, and algae biofuel feedstock generation and separation. He is a registered professional engineer (P.E.).
