Ming-Jer Lee received his BS degree in Chemical Engineering from National Cheng-Kung University, Taiwan, in 1977. He attended the Master program in the same institute and earned his Master degree in 1979. From 1981 to 1982, he worked as a Chemical Engineer in International Operation Analysis Company, Taiwan. On July 1982, Mr. Lee joined the faculty of Chemical Engineering Department, National Taiwan Institute of Technology (NTIT). He pursued his PhD degree at School of Chemical Engineering, Purdue University, USA, from 1985 to 1988. After that, he returned NTIT and served as an Associate Professor in 1989 and promoted to be a Professor in 1993. NTIT changed her name as National Taiwan University of Science & Technology (NTUST) in 1997. Professor Lee’s major research interests are thermophysical property measurements and correlations. Particular attentions are placed on phase equilibria. Various apparatuses have been installed in the Thermophysical Properties Laboratory at NTUST for measuring density, viscosity, enthalpy, kinetics, and phase-equilibrium data over wide ranges of temperature and pressure. The mixtures of interest are composed of water, organic compounds, ionic liquids, electrolytes, supercritical fluids, specialty chemicals, disperse dyes, oligomers, polymers, or biological buffers. His research group also focused on the study of nano-particles formation with supercritical fluid technology. Recently, the study on the molecular interactions in the mixtures containing biomolecules and biological buffers is another topic of interest.
