PRINCIPLE INVESTIGATOR

Young Jin Lee

Dr. Lee joined the faculty in August 2008 as an Assistant Professor. He received his Ph.D. from Seoul National University in 1997 under Dr. Myung Soo Kim.
After working on surface mass spectrometry (Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry) in Hyundai Electronics, he moved to Indiana to develop ion mobility mass spectrometry as a post- doctoral fellow under David E. Clemmer.
Before joining Iowa State, he worked at the Genome Center, University of California at Davis as a mass spectrometry specialist. His mass spectrometry expertise varies from physical chemistry to surface mass spectrometry, instrumentation, proteomics, and small molecule analysis.
