Concurrent/hierarchical multiscale modeling; Characteristics of nanoscale structures; Surface energetics and kinetics of metallic materials
Byeongchan Lee joined the Metals and Alloys group in April 2005 as a postdoctoral fellow. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University in 2001 and 2005, respectively. His thesis was entitled "Multiscale simulations of metal nanoparticles". He received a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering Magna Cum Laude from Seoul National University in 1999. Since joining the Metals and Alloys group, Dr. Lee has worked on nanomechanics, the science and engineering of the mechanical behavior of nanoscale systems.
Byeongchan Lee is currently an assistant professor at Kyung Hee University in South Korea.
