Dr Lee Der-Horng (李德紘) is a professor at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, National University of Singapore (NUS). Professor Lee was graduated with his PhD degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) in 1996. Under the supervision of Professor David Boyce, Professor Lee’s PhD thesis was then the first attempt of formulating and solving a dynamic user-optimal (DUO) route choice model with the aim of experimenting with the test network of the ADVANCE Project (ADVANCE – The Illinois Dynamic Navigation and Route Guidance Demonstration Program). From 1996 to 1997, he was a research fellow at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) where he participated in several US Federal Government ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) projects. In 1997, Professor Lee joined the Institute of Transportation Studies of the University of California at Irvine (UCI) as an assistant researcher. In his 2 years stint at UCI, he played the leading role in the project – California ATMS (Advanced Transportation Management Systems) Testbed. In September 1999, Professor Lee relocated to Singapore and joined NUS as an assistant professor at then the Department of Civil Engineering. Professor Lee was an Honoree of 2002 TR100 Award (now known as TR35) by MIT's Technology Review. TR100 is an award for World 100 top innovators under 35 whose work and ideas will change the world. From 2004 to 2006, Professor Lee served as the Director of Degreed Education at The Logistics Institute – Asia Pacific (TLI-AP), a collaboration between NUS and Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in the areas of global logistics and supply chain management.
Professor Lee’s professional expertise includes Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), container port operations, aviation management, traffic simulation, transportation policy, regional and urban transportation planning, sustainable transportation and mobility. Professor Lee has published more than 250 referred journal papers, book chapters, books, and conference papers detailing his research activities.
