Albert Lee is a research scientist on the Data, Dynamics and Analytics Team, and he has a PhD in Physics from Harvard University. For his graduate work, he studied the physical properties of interstellar dust by mapping the three-dimensional variation in its temperature and by using large catalogs of stars to infer its color and composition. He has been a recipient of the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship as well as the Insight Data Fellowship. At IDM he is developing new genetic models and tools to better understand the transmission properties of diseases. Outside the office you'll likely find him scribbling away in a sketchpad or hunting for LPs.
