Howard Lee is currently an Assistant Professor at Baylor University and IQSE Fellow at Texas A&M. He was a postdoc fellow in Harry Atwater's group at Caltech from 2012-2015. He received my Ph.D. degrees in Physics from the Max Planck Institute for the
Science of Light in 2012 under the supervision of Prof. Philip Russell [2015 president of the Optical Society of America (OSA)].
Our research focuses on developing new techniques, including novel active materials and
nanostructures, to control the interaction between light and matter at the nanometer length-scale, and to study emergent optical phenomena of novel nanophotonic components. Specific research interests lie in the physics, nanoscale material sciences and device engineering of nano-optics, plasmonics, metamaterials/metasurfaces and photonic crystal fiber optics.
