Lee is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. As a member of the Geotechnical and Environmental Engineering research group, he specialises in geo-energy and geo-environmental engineering.
His main area of research is geological CO₂ sequestration, looking at the nature of CO₂ flow and storage in deep fractured rock formations. This has involved theoretical and numerical model developments using dual porosity and discrete fracture approaches, recently being expanded to include the interplays between fluid injection and the induced microseismicity and permeability evolution of fractured rocks. This research is of practical importance to industry and public stakeholders for the development of geothermal energy and CO₂ sequestration, as well as being a topic of significant interest to the general public. It is being conducted in collaboration with China University of Mining and Technology following funding from The Royal Society.
Before joining Brunel University London at the start of 2020, Lee was a Research Associate at the Geoenvironmental Research Centre, Cardiff University, where he led the CO₂ Sequestration work package of the £24 million FLEXIS energy systems research project (2015-2020). He received his PhD from Cardiff University in 2014, having graduated with a First Class (Hons) MEng degree in Civil Engineering, also from Cardiff University.
