Woo Lee


Prof. Woo Lees research involves self-assembly, nanomaterials, biomaterials, and microfluidics. He uses an array of state-of-the-art tools such as soft-lithography, inkjet printing, and layer-by-layer and evaporative self-assembly to create new materials and devices. The applications of his research include development of infection-resistant implant surfaces, nanomaterial printing for miniature energetic and energy storage devices, and development of 3D tissue models for studying the systematic interactions of drugs, nanomaterials, biomaterials, and pathogens with the human body.

Prof. Woo Lee is George Meade Bond Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, and teaches both Chemical Engineering and Materials Science students.

He also directs the Center for MicroChemical Systems. He is Fellow of the American Ceramic Society, and a member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the Materials Research Society, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He has published more than 80 journal papers, and received seven U.S. patents.
