Myung J. Lee


Dr. Myung J. Lee received a B.S and an MS from Seoul National University in Korea and Ph.D degree from Columbia University in electrical/electronics engineering. He is currently a professor at the Dept of Electrical & Computer Engineering and a doctoral faculty of computer science at Graduate Center of City University of New York. He is also an adjunct professor at GIST.

Dr. Lee’s recent research interests include mobile edge cloud computing, stochastic computing applications, secure vehicular communications, SDN, V2X, wireless sensor/ad hoc networks, mobile wireless testbed beyond 5G. His researches have been funded by government agencies and leading industries, including, NSF, ARL, Bellcore, Samsung and ETRI. He published over 180 international journals/conference papers, a book (Green IT: Technologies and Applications, Springer)(ed.), book chapters,  more than 25 U.S and international patents, and numerous international standard contributions including IEEE 802.15 standards (chair for TG5 WPAN Mesh and TG8 Peer Aware Communications) and ZigBee.  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 awards at IEEE CCNC 2005 and 1st SMARTGIFT conference 2016, and CUNY Performance Excellence Award.
