Dr. Su Jin Lee is a Lecturer for the Spatial Sciences Institute at the University of Southern California (USC). He received his B.S. and M.S. in Earth and Marine Science from Hanyang University, Korea in 2000 and 2003, respectively, and his Ph.D. in Geography from USC in 2012.

He is the recipient of several academic awards and scholarships, including an International Research Internship Program Award, Korea Science and Engineering Foundation (2004), Doctorial Merit Fellowships from USC (2006-2007, 2010-2011), a Graduate Teaching Assistant Award from USC (2008), and a General Education Graduate Teaching Assistant Award from USC (2009).

He is interested in research focused on human-environment interaction as well as human-social dynamics. More specifically, by using geospatial technologies such as GIS, GPS, and remote sensing, Lee studies how land use and land cover (LULC) have been changed, how terrains /landscapes have influenced LULC changes or been influenced by LULC changes, and how spatial analysis and various models have been implemented. In particular, Lee is currently interested in the continued growth of large metropolitan areas and resulting land use and land cover changes.

Lee has been published in such journals as Environmental Modeling & Software and Cartography and Geographic Information Science. He also has contributed to and updated a chapter about “Hurricane Katrina: Understanding Physical and Social Vulnerability” in Spatial LABS, 2012 and 2013 DVD.

He has been serving as either chair or member for more than fifteen M.S. students in the USC online Geographic Information Science and Technology Program.
