Yongjae Lee
Yonsei University
Mineral physics, Planetary science

Yongjae Lee is a professor at the Department of Earth System Sciences, Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea. With Ph.D. in geosciences from Stony Brook University in 2001, he discovered a “super-hydrated zeolite” forming under pressure while working as a postdoctoral fellow at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Through joining Yonsei University as a faculty in 2006, he continued to explore high-pressure behaviors of porous materials to establish “super-hydration” as a controllable property in crystalline host-guest systems. Over the past several years, he has extended “super-hydration” into a global and planetary settings and reported super-hydration and/or hydration-breakdowns of subducting clays and minerals, which sheds new insights into understanding geochemistry and seismicity in the region as well as deep water transport into the Earth. Recently, he is exploring water-mediated reactions in the early magma ocean and contemporary core-mantle boundary conditions by utilizing advanced synchrotron and X-ray free electron laser facilities in Korea, Germany, and USA. Yongjae Lee is the author of ~200 peer-reviewed research papers with h-index of ~41.

Kangwon National University

Research Area: Seismology
My main research interests have focused on the construction of 3D velocity and radial anisotropic models for crust and mantle. By dramatically improving the resolution with complementary multiple data sets, I could shed new light on tectonic evolution especially on the Arabian Peninsula and subduction zones around the Pacific Ocean. Now my study extends to global scale to obtain radially anisotropic structure, which will ensue new revelation on mantle convection and Earth's evolution.

Environmental Geochemistry

I am currently a professor of geomicrobiology and environmental microbiology at Korea University. I was a principal research scientist at Korea Institute of Science and Technology in 2011–2017. I was also a director’s postdoctoral fellow at Argonne National Laboratory and got my PhD from University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, USA. My research expertise is microbial biogeochemistry in pristine and contaminated subsurface environments.
I am broadly interested in geochemical and microbial processes controlling the transformation and mobility of metals, radionuclides and organic contaminants both in engineered and natural environments. In particular, I have investigated the relationships among microorganisms, carbon, iron and sulfur biogeochemical cycling, which have critical implications for the remediation of metal, radionuclide and/or organic compound contaminated environments and for the development of microbial extraction technologies of critical metals from geological material including rock, soil, sediment, and water.
