Dr. Eon Soo Lee is an Associate Professor with Tenure in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, and the Principal Investigator in Advanced Energy Systems and Microdevices Laboratory at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) since 2013, and Founder and President of ABONICS, Inc which was spun off from NJIT in 2018 for the development and commercialization of the biochip technology for disease detection, diagnosis, and monitoring. Dr. Lee is a Senior Member of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI) since 2020. His pioneering research on graphene-based new electrochemical catalysts and lab-on-a-chip nano biodevices technologies has received many national and international awards and recognitions including Vanguard Series: Leaders in Higher Education (2018) from NJBIZ, New Jersey Health Foundation Innovation Award (2017), NIH and IEEE Best Design Award (2017) in Healthcare Innovation and Point-of-care Technology Conference, National Science Foundation Innovation-Corps Award (2016), TechConnect National Innovation Award (2017) and Defense Innovation Award (2017). Prior to NJIT, Dr. Lee has also established extensive researches on energy and microdevices in both academia and industries including Stanford University (2002-2007), Samsung (2007-2013) and Hyundai (1999-2001). In particular, at Samsung R&D Center as a Project Group Leader and Principal Research Engineer, Dr. Lee was awarded a prestigious Samsung Technology Award in 2011 due to his significant contribution to the innovative nanomaterials and electrochemical systems. He received his PHD (2007) and MS (2004) at Stanford University, and his BS (1999) at Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea, all in Mechanical Engineering.
