Dr. Jet-Sing M. Lee

JSPS Research Fellow

Department of Chemistry and Biotechnology, School of Engineering

The University of Tokyo


Jet was born in the United Kingdom in 1991. He received his MChem degree (2013) from the University of Liverpool, which included a research year in industry at Ineos. He obtained his PhD (2018) at the same university under the supervision of Prof. Andrew I. Cooper FRS. His work focused on developing functional carbonaceous materials from porous organic polymers for electrochemical applications. During the final year of his PhD, he simultaneously undertook a JSPS Research Fellow at Kyoto University with Prof. Susumu Kitagawa. After, he worked as a research assistant professor for a year at Kyoto University. His current research is focused on discovering new stimuli-responsive porous frameworks.
