Research : Professor Lee’s research focuses on aerodynamics, aeroacoustics, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) with applications to rotorcraft, wind energy, aircraft engine, and turbomachinery. Our lab is conducting mathematical and computational research on fluid mechanics, aerodynamics, and aeroacoustics. Professor Lee worked at GE Global Research Center in New York for five years prior to joining UC Davis.
Professor Lee is a faculty advisor of the ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) undergraduate club at UC Davis.
Professor Lee is looking for highly motivated graduate/undergraduate students and a post-doctoral research associate. If you are interested in joining Aeroacoustics Lab, please contact Dr. Lee by email or apply to the MAE graduate program at UC Davis and indicate your interest to work with Dr. Lee on the application form. Unfortunately, he may not be able to respond to all emails about admission to our graduate program.
