Prof. Lee is an assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH). Her research focuses on understanding the mechanics of soft structures accompanying large deformations and exploiting the functional mechanism that mechanical instabilities possess.

She received her BS and MS both in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Seoul National University (SNU) in 2011 and 2013, respectively, and her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2018. She then moved as a Post-Doc to the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL, 2018). She participated in the 2018 Rising Stars Workshop as a shortlisted participant and has been newly appointed at POSTECH since January of this year.
