Dr. Jejung “JJ” Lee

Prof. Lee specializes in hydrogeology and environmental geophysics with emphasis on engineering application to computational hydro-geomechanics. His research focuses on developing numerical and theoretical methodologies that merge various hydrologic and geologic data including geophysical data, GIS information, and field sampling data into a stochastic modeling framework to characterize uncertain hydrologic processes, transport of contaminants, and unknown structures of basins/reservoirs. He is also interested in developing innovative geophysical/geotechnical methods to characterize hydrogeologic structures and remotely monitor contaminant transport. His recent projects are to quantify impacts of climate change on groundwater recharge with integration of surface soil cover, land use and vegetation. He teaches hydrogeology, geotechnics, environmental geophysics, spatial data analysis, and introductory environmental science
