Dr. Joonhee Lee is an assistant professor in the Department of Building, Civil and Environmental Engineering. He received his BSc from Seoul National University in South Korea. He completed an MSc in architectural sciences from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a PhD in architectural engineering from The University of Nebraska–Lincoln. His research interests are building acoustics, psychoacoustics and noise control. Specifically, he investigates how annoying noises affect human perception and performance to apply findings to evidence-based building designs.
