Professor Lee’s research interest focuses on the evolution of communication, knowledge, and collaboration networks in and across organizations over time. Her current emphasis is on applying theories of socio-cultural evolution to complex forms of networks including multiplex and multimodal networks. Her ongoing projects examine the evolution of creative interaction and social ties in project teams; the role of network ties among people and organizations in disaster recovery; and the determinants and outcomes of multiplex ties in various settings. Professor Lee has received the 2009 W. Charles Redding Dissertation Award from the Organizational Communication Division of the International Communication Association. She teaches courses on social network analysis, organizational communication as well as research methods and statistics.
