The Lee group has interests in developing new mass spectrometry techniques and applying to solve science and engineering problems. The two current major focus areas are mass spectrometry imaging in single cell or subcellular level high-spatial resolution, and understanding complex bio-oils produced through thermochemical conversion. Students in the Lee group will learn skills and in-depth knowledge about instrumentation and fundamental principles of mass spectrometry, and most importantly how to solve real world problems with these skills. Alumni have been able to find positions in pharmaceutical and petroleum industries or academic institutions.
