Stephanie S. Lee

Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science
Stevens Institute of Technology

Stephanie S. Lee received a BS in chemical engineering from MIT in 2007 and a PhD in chemical engineering and materials science with Prof. Yueh-Lin Loo from Princeton University in 2012. She was a Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellow in the Molecular Design Institute at NYU with Prof. Mike Ward from 2012-2014 before joining Stevens as an assistant professor. Her research group studies the crystal engineering of solution-processable semiconductors for emerging optoelectronic applications, including flexible displays and photovoltaics. Their strategies involve the use of solution rheology to monitor and control semiconducting polymer network formation, scaffold-directed crystallization of small molecules into vertical crystal arrays and nanoconfined crystallization to shift the thermodynamics and stability of  metal-halide perovskites for high performance solar cells.  Lee is a recipient of the Stevens Early Career Award for Research Excellence and a 2019 NSF CAREER awardee.
