Professor Lee received the B.Eng. and M.Eng. degrees in radio science and engineering from Korea University, Seoul, Korea, in 1997 and 1999, respectively, and Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, in 2009.
In 1999, he joined LG Information and Communications (now LG Electronics), where his activities included design and reliability analysis of RF components for code-division multiple-access (CDMA) cellular systems. In 2001, he joined Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), where he was involved in designing passive microwave equipment for Ku- and Ka-band communications satellites. In 2005, he joined The University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, where he was a Research Assistant and Graduate Student Instructor with the Radiation Laboratory, duing which time his research activities focused on millimeter-wave radars and synthesis techniques for mulitple-passband microwave filters. In 2009, he joined Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, where he was a Post-Doctoral Research Associate involved with the design of adaptable RF systems. In 2012, he joined Korea University, Seoul, Korea, where he is currently an Assistant Professor. He is listed in Who's Who in America. His research interests include RF and microwave components, satellite transponders, and electromagnetic theories.
Professor Lee was a recipient of the Freshman Award presented by Korea University, the Undergraduate Fellowship presented by Korea University, the Graduate Fellowship presented by LG Information and Communications, and the Graduate Fellowship presented by the Korea Science and Engineering Foundation. He was a recipient of the Rackham Predoctoral Fellowship presented by the Rackham Graduate School, The University of Michigan. He was also the recipient of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (IEEE MTT-S) Graduate Fellowship.
