Research Interests

Professor Myung Jong Lee's research interests include wireless sensor networks, ad hoc networks, wireless multimedia networking, and Internet. His researches have been funded by government agencies and leading industries, including, NSF, ARL, ARO, DoD, Samsung, Telcordia, ETRI, AT&T, and Panasonic. He authored and co-authored over 130 journals, book chapters, and conference papers and 25 U.S and International Patents (pending included). He is an associate editor for IEEE communications magazine. Dr. Lee actively participates in international standard organizations (currently the chair of IEEE 802.15.5 TG and former Vice Chair of ZigBee NWK WG). His group also contributed NS-2 module for IEEE 802.15.4, a standard NS-2 distribution widely used for wireless sensor network researches. He is the co-recipient of the best paper award from IEEE CCNC 2005 and CUNY Excellence Performance Award.
