Dr. Lee is a professor in the Department of Science Education at Ewha Womans University. She obtained her Ph.D. from Curriculum & Instruction at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). She has been conducting research on teaching socioscientific issues (SSI), especially development of SSI curriculum and programs, teacher professional development for teaching SSI, and analysis of students’ informal reasoning on SSI. She also has her expertise in qualitative methodology. With Dr. Witz at UIUC and his colleagues, she is working on essentialist portraiture which investigates inner values, beliefs and philosophies of individuals.
