Burtrand Lee joined Clemson University in 1986. He has also been at the Norwegian Institute of Technology, Norway, since 1989 as a Fulbright Professor of materials science and at the Hitachi Research Laboratory, Japan, since 1993 as a Visiting Senior Researcher. Dr. Lee holds the B.S. and M.S. degrees in chemistry and a Ph.D. degree in materials science and engineering from the University of Florida. Dr. Lee's group is interested in the synthesis and processing of novel ceramic materials for superior properties and performances in two groups—surface and colloidal science of ceramic particles and sol-gel processing and applications. The group aims at finding problems in materials processing as well as solving them. It utilizes chemical synthesis techniques in combination with physical techniques such as application of external forces: radiation or magnetic/electric fields to obtain novel structure and properties.
