He is also a Fellow of the American Physical Society, Division of Plasma Physics and a Distinguished Laboratory Research Fellow of Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. In 2011, he was awarded the Dawson Prize "for laying foundations of modern simulations of plasma turbulence, in particular, the discovery of gyrokinetic simulation models and perturbative simulation methods with successful applications on leadership class computing platforms worldwide." Dr. Lee received his undergraduate training from National Taiwan University, his MS from Duke University and his PhD from Northwestern University. He came to PPPL in 1974 from Fermilab. He appreciates very much the experience of working with his colleagues, post docs and students at PPPL.
