Elaine Lee is a research engineer in the Materials Engineering Division at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and a member of the Center of Engineered Materials and Manufacturing. She joined LLNL after completing her Ph.D. (2015) and M.S. (2012) in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania, and S.B. (2009) in Materials Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Her research interests include the understanding of structure-property relationships in functional nanomaterials and multi-scale composites and the micro- and nanofabrication of hierarchically engineered materials for multifunctional integration. Currently, she leads efforts focused on the controlled release of microencapsulants and the development of engineered materials for flexible optoelectronic technologies. She also supports additive manufacturing projects with applications in radiation detection and nuclear forensics.
