About Professor Lee

My love for psychology stems from my undergraduate days when I worked with students with special needs. This led me to a career as a school psychologist for a public school district. While working on my doctorate, I researched issues related to learning and cognition and taught several difference courses in psychology and learning.

In my free time, I love to travel, play sports, and read.
