Dongjin Lee, PhD

A researcher specializing in uncertainty quantification and computation methods for multidisciplinary applications


I am a Postdoctoral Scholar working with Dr. Boris Krämer in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at UC San Diego. My research interests include uncertainty quantification and stochastic design optimization for complex mechanical systems. In my postdoctoral research, I am working on developing multifidelity methods for accurate and computationally efficient risk assessment and risk-averse design optimization for multidisciplinary engineering systems.   

In 2021, I obtained a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Iowa, where I was supervised by Dr. Sharif Rahman. For my thesis, I developed robust algorithms for stochastic optimization under uncertainty with dependent random variables. From 2013 to 2017, I worked as a research engineer at Hyundai Motor Company in South Korea. I received an MS in Multiscale Mechanical Design from Seoul National University in 2013 and a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Yonsei University in 2011.
