Distinguished Lecture by Prof. Daniel D. LeeProf. Daniel Lee from the University of Pennsylvania was invited to visit the Department and delivered a Distinguished Lecture on "Dimensionality Reduction for Real-Time Autonomous Systems" on 9 March 2011. After the Lecture, Prof. Lee also shared his expertise and experience with the research postgraduate students.
Prof. Lee is currently the Evan C. Thompson Endowed Professor, Raymond S. Markowitz Faculty Fellow, and Associate Professor of Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. He received his B.A. in Physics from Harvard University in 1990, and his Ph.D. in Condensed Matter Physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1995. Before coming to Penn, he was a researcher at Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies, from 1995-2001 in the Theoretical Physics and Biological Computation departments. He has received the NSF Career Award and the University of Pennsylvania Lindback Award for distinguished teaching; he was a fellow of the Hebrew University Institute of Advanced Studies in Jerusalem, and a foreign affiliate of the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, and has helped organize the US-Japan National Academy of Engineering Frontiers of Engineering Symposium. His research focuses on understanding the general principles that biological systems use to process and organize information, and on applying that knowledge to build better artificial sensorimotor systems.
