  • Academic Areas & Scholarly Interests

    Dr. Lee’s research interests include information technology and strategic decision making practices in various engineering management fields. He has participated in numerous funded research projects for the Indiana Department of Transportation/Federal Highway Administration as a research assistant, Principal Investigator (PI), and consultant since 2000. Through these projects, he helped the government develop information technology systems and improve efficiency in construction management and operation. His recent project experience includes a research project to develop a computer model for flood management and a study on urban drainage system using embedded sensors and computer modeling which is leading to research papers, undergraduate research projects, and external grant proposal development. More recently, his research area has expanded to spatial analysis utilizing commercial Geographic Information System (GIS) applications and machine learning based forecasting in engineering practices.

  • Teaching Experience

    Prior to joining CBU, Dr. Lee was a faculty member of Construction Management at Purdue University Northwest. His teaching interests include construction management, scheduling and project control, equipment management, engineering economics for construction, and principles of highway construction.
