Dr. Myung J. Lee received a B.S. and an M.S. from Seoul National University in Korea and Ph.D. degree from Columbia University in electrical/electronics engineering. He is currently a professor at the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering and a doctoral faculty of computer science at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. He is also an adjunct professor at GIST. Dr. Lee’s recent research interests include secure vehicular communications, vehicle-to-smart grid, wireless sensor/ad hoc networks, and mobile cloud computing. His research has been funded by government agencies and leading industries, including NSF, ARL, Bellcore, Samsung, and ETRI. He published over 150 international journals/conference papers, a book (Green IT: Technologies and Applications, Springer-Verlag)(ed.), book chapters, more than 25 U.S and international patents, and numerous contributions to IEEE 802.15 standards and ZigBee (currently the chair of IEEE 802.15 TG8 PAC). He is a technical editor for IEEE communications magazine. Dr. Lee’s research group developed the first NS-2 simulator for IEEE 802.15.4, a standard NS-2 distribution widely used for wireless sensor network researches. He received the best paper award at IEEE CCNC 2005 and CUNY Excellence Performance Award.
