Minjoo Larry Lee received the Sc.B. with honors in materials science and engineering from Brown University, Providence, RI in 1998 and the Ph.D. in electronic materials from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, MA in 2003. From 2003 to 2006, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher with the Microsystems Technology Laboratory at MIT, and from 2006-2007, he was with the Center for Thermoelectrics Research at RTI International in Durham, NC. In 2008 he joined the EE department at Yale University as an assistant professor, and in 2016 he joined the ECE department at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as an associate professor. His primary research interest is in growth and characterization of III-V and group-IV semiconductors for optoelectronic applications including solar cells, lasers, and transistors. He is the author or coauthor of over 130 technical papers and refereed conference proceedings and holds nine patents. He has received numerous recognitions including: the IBM faculty award, the Lange Lectureship in Materials (UCSB), the NAMBE Young Investigator Award, DARPA Young Faculty Award, NSF CAREER award, MRS gold award for graduate student research, and the IEEE Electron Device Society George E. Smith award. His advisees have won 8 best presentation prizes at the MRS fall meeting, IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference, Electronic Materials Conference, and NAMBE. In 2014, he gave an invited talk at the Gordon Research Conference on Defects in Semiconductors, and in 2015, he received the Ackerman Award for Teaching and Mentoring.
