Jeong Yong Lee

Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Republic of Korea


Jeong Yong Lee obtained a B.S. degree in materials engineering from the Seoul National University, Republic of Korea, in 1972 and an M.S. degree in materials science and engineering from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology in 1976. After graduation, he worked as an Engineer or Manager at the Central Research Laboratory of Gold Star Co., Ltd and Gold Star Precision Industries Co., Ltd for more than five years. Since 1981, Lee has started to study at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering of the University of California, Berkeley, USA, and has been working as a Graduate Student Research Assistant at the Materials and Molecular Research Division of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and in 1986, he got a Ph.D. degree in materials science and engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. Lee began his academic career as an Assistant Professor at the Daejeon campus of the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology in 1986. Later in 1996, he became a Full Professor. He has been a Member of the Korea Academy of Science and Technology since 1999. He is an author or a coauthor of over four hundred international journal papers. His research interests are application of transmission electron microscopy to the microstructural characterization of nanomaterials, study of the nature of structural defects in the nanomaterials and their effects on electrical, physical, and chemical properties, the establishment of the relationship between the atomic structure of crystalline interfaces and their roles in transformations: modeling of atomistic processes involved in physical or chemical reactions, and atomic imaging of nanomaterials during their chemical reactions using transmission electron microscopy. Lee works as an Editorial Board Member of Advances in Nano Research, the Open Journal Inorganic Non-metallic Materials, and the Korean Journal of Microscopy.
