Daeyeon Lee Wins James M. Lee Memorial Award from Korean Institute of Chemical Engineers
Daeyeon Lee, professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, has been selected by the U.S. Chapter of the Korean Institute of Chemical Engineers (KIChE) as the recipient of the 2019 James M. Lee Memorial Award.
KIChE is an organization that aims “to promote constructive and mutually beneficial interactions among Korean Chemical Engineers in the U.S. and facilitate international collaboration between engineers in U.S. and Korea.”
Lee has been a particularly active member of the KIChE community, winning the KIChE President Young Investigator Award in 2012 and taking over the position of president of the U.S. Chapter in 2015. The James M. Lee Memorial Award honors the late first president of the U.S. Chapter of KIChE by recognizing an outstanding Korean or Korean-American chemical engineer.
Lee’s research seeks to deepen scientists’ knowledge of how soft materials interact. His lab focuses on using microscale materials to engineer macroscale materials with particular properties. Lee will accept the James M. Lee Memorial award and give a presentation on his research at a conference this November.
