Kee Sung Lee
Kee Sung Lee received his B.S. degree in ceramic engineering from Hanyang University, Seoul, Republic of Korea (1985–1989). He received his M.S. degree from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Daejeon, Republic of Korea (1989–1991). The thesis was titled “A study on the properties and electric discharge machining of Si3N4-based electro-conductive ceramic composites.” He obtained his Ph.D. degree from Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Republic of Korea (1995–1998). Experiment for Ph.D. thesis was conducted at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, Md, USA from September 1996 to May 1997. The advisor of the thesis was Dr. Brian Lawn, an NIST Fellow. The thesis was titled “A study on the contact damage in silicon nitride bilayer.” He worked as an Associate Professor at the School of Mechanical Science and Automotive Engineering, Kookmin University, Seongbuk-gu, Seoul, Republic of Korea, from 2006 to 2012. From 2012 till now, he serves as a Professor at the School of Mechanical Systems Engineering, Kookmin University. His research interests include mechanical behavior of ceramics, fracture and damage mechanics, thermal and wear resistant ceramic coatings, and design and properties of fiber composites.
