Research Area

Dr. Lee’s research focuses on combustion and propulsion problems in air-breathing and rocket propulsion systems. He has many years of experience in combustion dynamics in gas turbine, ramjet and augmentor, development of various laser-based optical diagnostic techniques with applications to propulsion systems, combustion control and sensors monitoring the combustion process, turbulent flame propagations and multi-phase combustion processes.

He has been collaborating with many major gas turbine/aircraft industries such as GE Aviation, GE Energy, Pratt and Whitney, Siemens-Westinghouse, Solar Turbines as well as the AFRL-Wright Patterson, NASA-GRC and DOE NETL (Natural Energy Technology Laboratory, Morgantown, WV) in those areas. His research interests also include supersonic combustion, plasma-aided combustion, solid-propellants and combustion of alternative fuels.
