Mechanical Engineering


Jaeho Lee received his MS and PhD in mechanical engineering from Texas Tech University. He was an adjunct faculty member in The School of Science, Engineering and Technology at Penn State Harrisburg. He is currently a lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Binghamton University.

His research interests include fundamental mechanism of friction, wear and lubrication; micro/nanoscale finite element analysis of engineering applications; and dynamic adhesion of thin films.

He worked for Contact and Surface Engineering Laboratory in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas Tech University as a research staff and the Sidhu School of Business and Leadership at Wilkes University as an adjunct faculty. He has been working on multiple industrial projects funded by the National Science Foundation and Seagate Technology.
