Dr. Taehun Lee: Mathematical Innovation with Practical Implications
Start: 09/17/08
End: 09/30/10

Dr-Taehun-LeeTaehun Lee is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering who joined the Grove School in 2006. He has just been awarded a 3-year, $182,000 grant by the National Science Foundation to continue his work on a mathematical breakthrough which will have innovative implications for many things we use in our daily lives.

Dr. Lee’s research entails numerical modeling of liquid slip on superhydrophobic surfaces. Superhydrophobic surfaces are of great interest in many industrial and biological applications because of their properties such as anti-sticking, anti-contamination, and self-cleaning. These applications include anti-biofouling, paints for boats, anti-sticking of snow for antennas and windows, self-cleaning windshields for automobiles, metal refining, stain resistant textiles, and anti-soiling architectural coatings, among many others.
