Junghoon Lee, Ph.D.

Junghoon Lee is an Assistant Professor of the Department of Radiation Oncology and Molecular Radiation Sciences at the Johns Hopkins University. He received B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering and M.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering in 1997 and 1999, respectively, both from Seoul National University, Seoul, Republic of Korea. He received Ph.D. degree from Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2006. From 1996 to 1999 he was a research assistant in the Artificial Heart Lab. at Seoul National University, where he developed telemetry system and the controller for the total artificial heart. From 1997 to 1998 he was a visiting researcher at the Electronics and Telecommunication Research Institute (ETRI), Daejeon, Korea, where he designed an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) layout for the totally implantable artificial heart internal controller and telemetry unit. In 1998, he was a research assistant in the Department of Radiology at Seoul National University, where he conducted research on Image guided neurosurgery and the total artificial heart virtual surgery. From 2002 to 2007 he was a research assistant at the Purdue University, where he designed a statistical approach for simultaneous 3-D reconstructions and classification of multiple types of viruses from cryo electron microscopy data. In 2007, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the NSF Engineering Research Center for Computer-Integrated Surgical Systems and Technology at the Johns Hopkins University as a Postdoctoral Fellow, and continued to work as an Associate Research Scientist from 2009 to 2010, and an Assistant Research Professor from 2010 to 2013. Since 2012, he has been leading the Medical Image Computing and Analysis (MICA) group in the Department of Radiation Oncology. His current research interests are in image processing and computer vision with application to medical imaging problems.
