Lee holds a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Pennsylvania State University, and MS and BS degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Hanyang University, Korea.

He has published many articles in journals and numerous conference proceedings.

He was a research assistant at Penn State, where he worked on many research projects, including the GE Swozzle Flame Holding Project. He participated in a variety of projects working with syngas autoignition, syngas flame speed, a pulse detonation engine, a gas turbine engine, soot abatement, a liquid rocket engine, rocket-based combined cycle and spray pyrolysis.

SCOTT A. MIERS
Scott A. Miers joins the faculty of the Department of Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics as an assistant professor. He comes to Michigan Tech from the Argonne National Laboratory.

Miers holds PhD and BS degrees in Mechanical Engineering and an MS in Engineering Mechanics from Michigan Tech.

He was a teaching assistant for the Fundamentals of Internal Combustion Engines course and a National Science Foundation Fellow working on the "Integrating Calculator-Based Labs into a High School Math Curriculum" project. He was also a graduate student coordinator in the Engineering Learning Center, a recitation instructor for a statistics course and a laboratory teaching assistant for Mechanical Vibrations.

He received the SAE Excellence in Oral Presentation Award; first place at the Sigma Xi Multi-Disciplinary Student Research Colloquium; second place at the Society for Experimental Mechanics student paper competition; the 2001 Campus Campaign Graduate Award for his "participation, leadership and service in the academic research community"; and the Certificate of Merit in the Department of Mathematical Sciences.

He is a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the Michigan Tech ME-EM Department Graduate Committee.

He worked at Argonne National Laboratory, where he was a principal investigator for two major projects. He also conducted diesel engine research that included measuring and analyzing emissions, cylinder pressure and in-cylinder combustion images on a light-duty diesel engine operating on a Fischer-Tropsch biodiesel.

He worked for Fast Action Support Team Inc. as a technical engineer; the Kimberly Clark Corporation as an infant care engineering assistant and an infant care scientist assistant; and at Air Conditioning and Controls Inc. as a service engineer.
