Biography

Stephen Lee graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a B.S. in Applied Science: Biomedical Engineering in 2015. He worked with Dr. Gianmarco Pinton on shear-shock wave tracking using focused ultrasound. In the summer of 2014, he also worked at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in the neurosurgery department as a visiting researcher. For his doctoral research, Stephen is currently investigating the modulation of the peripheral nervous system using focused ultrasound.
