Dr. Lee is a Lecturer of Spatial Sciences Institute in the Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences at the University of Southern California where he teaches in USC Spatial graduate and undergraduate programs, serves as a committee member for Geographic Information Science & Technology (GIST) Master student theses, and directs undergraduate student research.

His teaching philosophy is to develop spatial thinkers who understand geographic information science so that they can deploy that understanding through various technologies in the disciplines and domains of their choice. Dr. Lee has taught and currently teach courses for the online GIST Graduate Programs, the residential Master of Science in Spatial Informatics (SPIF) Program, and the online GeoHealth track in the Keck School of Medicine’s Master of Public Health Program. He also teaches USC Spatial courses offered in the General Education program and in the B.S. in GeoDesign program.

Over the past decade Dr. Lee has pursued research that spans the implementation and development of assessing ecosystem values. His research integrates spatial approaches in addressing questions of the interaction between humans and the environment using geospatial technologies such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing, and Global Positioning System (GPS).
