From 1983 to 1984, he worked for Microwave Semiconductor Corporation in Somerset, NJ as a Microwave Engineer. From 1984 to 1986, he was a Member of the Technical Staff at Hughes Aircraft Company in Tucson, Arizona where he worked on microwave IMPATT diode oscillators and amplifiers. From 1986 to 1990, he was a research assistant at the University of Arizona. In addition, during the summers of 1987 through 1989, he was a visiting scientist at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM where he worked on electromagnetic modeling for the particle beam fusion accelerator program. Since 1990, he has been at The Ohio State University where he is currently Chair and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Professor Lee teaches courses in the area of electromagnetics, and his major research interests are in the development and application of finite element and finite difference methods to electromagnetics-related applications. He has published over 70 journal papers in this area.
