Sangyeop Lee's primary appointment is with the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at the University of Pittsburgh.
His research focuses on:
Transport phenomena of heat, charge, and mass – simulation and experimental characterization of nanoscale transport; thermal transport in novel materials including 2D layered materials, phase change materials, ferroelectric materials, and soft matters; transport phenomena at interface; multi-scale simulation from nano to macroscale
Solid-state energy conversion – thermoelectrics; electrochemistry; electrocalorics
