Dr. Lee's research focuses on linking the built environment with public health outcomes. Her expertise is in 'active living research,' a transdisciplinary area of research that deals with environmental and policy approaches toward promoting physical activity.
Dr. Lee's contributions to this relatively new area of scholarship is significant in: (a) developing methodological and theoretical foundations, (b) bringing attention to high-risk populations, and (c) translating research into tools/guides to facilitate evidence-based policy/design interventions.
