Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Hyowon (Hugh) Lee received his B.A. in neuroscience from Colorado College in 2004 and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in biomedical engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 2008 and 2011, respectively.
Before joining Purdue, he worked as a senior engineer for St. Jude Medical’s Implantable Electronics Systems Division where he focused on using advanced fabrication technologies to overcome manufacturing challenges associated with implantable electronic devices such as pacemakers, ICDs, DBS, and other neurostimulation devices.
At UCLA, he trained in the areas of neuroengineering and microfabrication to develop novel implantable magnetic microactuators for hydrocephalus patients. His current research interests include development of implantable microsystems for neurological application, minimally invasive neurostimulation devices, MEMS-cell interface, and safety and reliability of implantable neurostimulation devices.
