Faculty: Lee, Jason
Department: Mechanical Engineering
Excerpt: Dr. Lee’s expertise is in polymer nanocomposite and nanofibers. He is particularly interested in applications where materials are exposed to high temperatures/heat fluxes and high pressures/forces. His work involved both processing and characterization of these materials to better understand how nanoparticles and processing parameters influence material performance. Dr. Lee is very interested in undergraduate education […]
