Dr. Lee joined the Speech and Hearing Sciences faculty in 2011. He obtained his bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering at the University of New South Wales and his doctorate at the Harvard-MIT Division in Health Sciences and Technology. He completed his postdoctoral training in the Department of Psychiatry and Radiology at Harvard Medical School & Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA.

Dr. Lee’s research focuses on developing multimodal imaging techniques to investigate the cortical network involved in auditory scene analysis and attention, especially through designing novel behavioral paradigms that bridge the gap between psychoacoustics and neuroimaging research.
