Adrian Lee read Natural Sciences at Downing College, University of Cambridge. For his work on small trapped-ion clusters, he received the ICI Prize in Theoretical Chemistry. After graduation, he worked briefly at the British Antarctic Survey under the supervision of Prof. Howard Roscoe. There he helped develop code to retrieve NO2 column amounts from zenith-sky spectrometers. Following this, he took up a Ph. D. scholarship at the Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge, under Prof. John Pyle FRS. In 1997, he completed his doctorate entitled ‘Numerical Modelling of Stratospheric Ozone’. A highlight of his doctoral studies was the development of a chemical forecasting methodology. In recognition of the use of this methodology during the ASHOE/MAESA international research campaign, he was awarded the NASA Achievement Award in 1995. He subsequently won a University Merit Award in 2000. Dr. Lee continued his research in atmospheric science in Prof. Pyle’s research group until 2002, when he was awarded the Singapore Millennium Foundation Fellowship. This fellowship brought him to the National University of Singapore. His research under the fellowship centred on developing models to understand the economic cost of air pollution and global warming. Following the fellowship, Dr. Lee took up a faculty position at NUS as a Lecturer in 2005, and was subsequently promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2008 and then to Associate Professor in 2018. He is currently the Deputy Director (Professional Development) at the Centre for Development of Teaching and Learning. His interests in education are wide-ranging and include technology-enhanced learning, especially blended learning, interdisciplinary education, and student living-learning experiences. In academic development, Adrian looks to build programmes within a collegial culture and furthering conversations that support reflective practice.
