Career Summary

Biography

As an expert in the field of architectural & design computing, Dr Lee was invited to become a visiting academic at the University of Newcastle in February 2011. In October 2012 he was appointed to a full-time research position at Newcastle as a post doc fellow in the School of Architecture and Built Environment.

Dr Lee has made a significant contribution towards architectural and design computing research over the past 10 years in three main areas: Design cognition, Augmented reality, and Design computing.

He has led his research programs on design cognition and creativity within the school and at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Built Environment Research (CIBER). His results have been presented and published at conferences of CAADFutures, the Architectural Science Association (ANZAScA), Design Research Society, the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA) and Design Computing and Cognition; and in the International Journal of Architectural Computing.

Since 2003 Dr Lee had extensive experience in digital architecture and has lectured in digital design at university level. After completing his PhD, he conducted research on specifying a mixed reality-based design system at the Kyunghee University. In 2009, he participated in developing a mobile service control system and context-aware database management system for ubiquitous computing, and also taught parametric modelling tools to the staff of two major architectural companies. He also conducted a research project on radio frequency identification applications in a building project supported by a grant (06-CIT-A02) from the Construction Infrastructure Technology Program, funded by the Korean Government.

Dr Lee is on the editorial board of Design Convergence Study and acts as a reviewer for international journals and conferences such as the Nexus Network Journal: Architecture and Mathematics, Urban Studies, Journal of Information Technology in Construction, Sustainability in Energy and Buildings, ANZAScA, CAADRiA and ICT. He has also served as reviewer for grants of the National Research Foundation of Korea, the Israel Science Foundation and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research.

Research expertise

Dr Lee has made a significant contribution towards architectural and design computing research in three main areas over the past 10 years

(1) Design cognition: Since joining the University of Newcastle, Dr Lee has been involved in various successful architecture and design computing research activities in the school. In particular, he conducted cognitive design experiments on the design process and products in parametric modelling environments. A framework combining protocol analysis and consensual assessment techniques was presented at the ANZAScA2011 Conference. His results were presented at the Design Research Society Conference (DRS 2012) and the Design Computing and Cognition conference (DCC’12). He has continued to contribute to the research field of design cognition, presenting papers in CAADRiA 2013, CAADFutures 2013, ANZAScA 2013 and publishing papers in the International Journal of Architectural Computing and International Journal of Design Creativity and Innovation. He is currently leading a research project on multi-cultural design communication in architectural design and practice.

(2) Augmented reality for embodied environments: Dr Lee’s PhD project in housing and interior design was one of the earliest studies that aimed to merge physical and virtual design factors into an embodied environment. Dr Lee also conducted research on specifying a mixed reality-based design system at the Centre of Human Ecology, Kyunghee University, in 2010. He continues to contribute to this field through his research on the mobile augmented reality for embodied environments in terms of immersion and mobile creativity, and collaborating with international researchers.

(3) Architectural and design computing: Before coming to Australia, Dr Lee had published in the field of architectural and design computing, especially on architectural applications for pervasive computing and context awareness in the building environments. The majority of Dr Lee's publications are in the area of applying novel technologies. For example, since 2006, he has conducted innovative research projects, ‘RFID Applications in a Building Project’, ‘CAME (Context Aware Mobile Engine)’, ‘Context-Aware Inference Engine considering User Behaviour’, and ‘a Work Service Model of the Ubiquitous Office’. This research has been published in CAADRiA, CAADFutures, ACM Conference on Creativity & Cognition, ISARC, GEST2009, and Computers in Industry, Advanced Engineering Informatics, the Journal of Civil Engineering and Architecture as well as several refereed Korean journals.

In Australia, Dr Lee has studied the combination of space syntax and shape grammar approaches (as part of Professor Ostwald’s ARC DP). In addition, with the school’s internal support, he has set up wireless sensor networks to develop the Sensory Design Lab in the Centre for Interdisciplinary Built Environment Research.

Teaching expertise

Since Dr. Lee became a full-time lecturer in South Korea in 2003, he has taught Digital Design, CAD Studio, Digital Presentation, etc. He also Instructed students on the practical application of various Architectural design and presentation environments. His expertise also allowed him to teach 'parametric design' to professionals at major architectural firms.

After joining the School, Dr. Lee has tutored 'Research in the built environment (ARBE4121)' and 'Building Information Modelling and Design collaboration (ARBE2202)'.
