Dr. Lee received a B.S. (Biology, 2001) from Yonsei University, South Korea, and Ph.D. (Cognitive neuroscience, 2010) from Dartmouth College. He completed postdoctoral training at University of Pennsylvania (2011-2016) before joining the faculty at OSU in the summer of 2016. Dr. Lee is currently the director of the SLAM (Speech, Language, and Music) lab at Speech and Hearing Department, as well as a core faculty member of the Center for Brain Injury under Discovery Theme Initiative.
Dr. Lee’s research involves unique interdisciplinary approaches (neuroscience, rehabilitation, computer science, genetics) to study plasticity of the brain in the context of communication disorders and brain injuries (e.g.,TBI and aphasia). He mainly uses functional neuroimaging techniques (fMRI, fNIRS) combined with behavioral experiments.
