Lee joined the Department of Chemistry at the University of Louisville as Assistant Professor in August 2017. Prior to his arrival in Louisville, he obtained a Master of Chemistry degree from University of Southampton (2004-2008). He carried out his doctoral research in the computational photochemistry group at Imperial College London (2009-2013), where he developed and applied computational methods for simulating the vibrational spectra of photoactive proteins. In 2014 he moved to the USA to take up a postdoctoral research position at the University of California, Merced (2014-2017) where he worked on approximate projection methods and their application to elucidation of transition metal oxide cluster photodetachment spectra.

I was born in Columbus, New Mexico on an air force base but raised in St. Louis, Missouri. I graduated from Lindbergh High School in St. Louis, Missouri in 2013. After high school I attended Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri from 2013-2017 and obtained my BS in Chemistry. While at Missouri State University I did undergraduate research in an organic lab studying non-soluble polymers. Also during my time at Missouri State I worked several jobs; PASS leader (peer assisted study session leader) for Organic 1 and 2, Organic 1 and 2 tutor, Organic 1 lab teacher, and I also worked in the Springfield water plant as a quality control analyst. After graduation I worked for Buckeye International in St. Louis, Missouri as a quality control analyst for a year before I came to University of Louisville. I am excited to be in Louisville and continuing my education in computational chemistry.
