Jane Hyo Jin Lee


Lee joins the Mathematics faculty at Stonehill after earning her doctorate from the University of California at Merced in the spring. While there, she served as a teaching fellow and teaching assistant, instructing courses in numerical analysis, linear algebra, and calculus among others. She was the recipient of the 2013-2014 Outstanding Teaching Award.

As an undergrad at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, Lee worked as a high school mathematics and science tutor and also taught kindergarten at the New Zealand School of Korea as well as a high school mathematics class for four years.

Her research is focused on understanding the behavior of nanoscale water structures in external electric fields as a key to understanding the mechanism of initiation of electroporation of cell membranes.
