    Research Description
    Prof. Lee specializes in hydrogeology and environmental geophysics with emphasis on engineering application to computational hydro-geomechanics. His research focuses on developing numerical and theoretical methodologies that merge various hydrologic and geologic data including geophysical data, GIS information, and field sampling data into a stochastic modeling framework to characterize uncertain hydrologic processes, transport of contaminants, and unknown structures of basins/reservoirs. He is also interested in developing innovative geophysical/geotechnical methods to characterize hydrogeologic structures and remotely monitor contaminant transport. His recent projects are to quantify impacts of climate change on groundwater recharge with integration of surface soil cover, land use and vegetation. He teaches hydrogeology, geotechnics, environmental geophysics, spatial data analysis, and introductory environmental science

Now that UR-Linked has helped you to identify a faculty member whose interests align with your interests, be sure to review the essential steps in contacting a potential faculty mentor.

The Director of Undergraduate Research, Dr. Jane Greer., can provide you with further guidance about finding and connecting with faculty mentors at UMKC.

Once you have reviewed the essential steps to prepare for connecting with a potential faculty mentor, you can use the "Contact Details" for this project to connect with the faculty member and to begin a conversation about how you might work with that him or her.
