UMCoE Industrial Engineer Seokgi Lee Receives Prestigious Honor from Society of Manufacturing Engineers
The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) has awarded Seokgi Lee, an assistant professor in the Department of Industrial Engineering, the prestigious 2018 SME Journal of Manufacturing Systems (JMS) Reviewer Award.
The JMS seeks to exchange current and future directions of manufacturing processes research, development and implementation, and to publish archival scholarly literature to advance the state-of-the-art in manufacturing processes and encourage innovation in new and efficient processes.
“I feel really honored to receive this award because SME is very prestigious,” Lee says. “It’s an international society, so the recipients are not just from the United States, they’re from all over the world. This award acknowledges my contributions to the Journal as well as the manufacturing community.”
Lee’s research interests include distributed system and control, dynamic probabilistic systems, and machine learning for a variety of research domains, such as energy-aware operations in manufacturing and transportation systems, prevention service and evidence-based predictive analytics as well as healthcare systems.
Prior to joining the College of Engineering, Lee served as a postdoctoral researcher in industrial and manufacturing engineering at Pennsylvania State University. He completed his doctorate at Pennsylvania State University in 2013.
The SME is the world’s leading professional society advancing manufacturing knowledge and influencing more than half a million manufacturing practitioners annually. Through its local chapters, technical communities, publications, expositions and professional development resources, SME promotes an increased awareness of manufacturing engineering and keeps manufacturing professionals up-to-date on leading trends and technologies. The Society has members in more than 70 countries and represents manufacturing practitioners across all industries.
