Lee started work as a scientist in the “Todays Models, Tomorrows Futures” (modelling) group at PML in July 2011. He has developed a point-to-point method for validating the POLCOM-ERSEM AMM hindcast with in situ measurements of the North Sea. He also performed comparisons of the POLCOM-ERSEM hindcast against meteorological indices using principal component analysis and cumulative sums methods. His research interests are primarily marine ecosystem model development and model validation using historic in situ measurements.
As a member of the UK Ocean Biogeochemistry Network Model Intercomparison Experiment, iMarNet, Lee is working with Dr Momme Butchenson to contribute the ERSEM section for a comparison of UK biogeochemical models coupled with the same underlying physics.
As a member of the UKERC project on the western English Channel and WaveHub, Lee is working with Dr Ricardo Torres to study the impact of renewable energy extraction on the marine ecosystem.
Before joining PML, Lee acquired a PhD from University of Lancaster in High Energy Experimental Particle physics, where he worked on flavour tagging and lifetime measurements of beauty hadrons in the ATLAS collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
