Entrevista:  

P: Quando você descobriu que sua carreira se concentrava em nanotecnologia? 
Lee: When I visited Univ. Texas at Dallas (UTD) in 2002 as a visiting researcher, I joined a team working on carbon nanotube (CNT) synthesis and applications. In that team, I worked on fabrication of CNT-based electronic devices.    

P: Em quais aplicações atuais de nanotecnologia você está trabalhando?   
Lee: Nanoscale transistors, Biosensors, phase change memory, electromechanical systems. All these devices can be used as a component in IT(information technology)/BT(biotechnology) systems.     Q: What’s the most rewarding thing about working with nanotechnology? 
Lee: It is a chance to get an insight into nature.     

Q: Is there an example you can provide that shows how something you’ve worked on has positively impacted the world? 
Lee: Our group has fabricated nanoscale electronic devices which will be commercialized in the near future for a next-generation IT systems. For example, those IT systems can be utilized for sensing biosignals as an embedded in wearable form.     

P: Qual você acha que foi o maior impacto que a nanotecnologia teve no mundo até agora?   
Lee: 
It makes mankind understand nature further through investigating and expanding knowledge on the ‘nano-world.’     

P: Por favor, dê um exemplo do que você imagina que as aplicações da nanotecnologia levarão no futuro.   
Lee: 
Biosensors, advanced memory devices, advanced electronic devices. These devices should be very compact, low cost, have a low power consumption, and be lightweight. Nanotechnology can meet those requirements.     

P: Você trabalha mais em equipe ou mais sozinho? 
Lee:
 I work more as a part of a team.     

P: Se você trabalha mais em equipe, quais são algumas das outras áreas de especialização dos membros de sua equipe?    
Lee:
 Physicists, biologists, chemists, and (electrical/material based) engineers.     

P: Sua formação universitária o ajudou em seu trabalho em nanotecnologia? 
Lee:
 Yes. In my research projects, advanced characterization and fabrication tools are very crucial. My university (that is, POSTECH) has provided those very good facilities.    

P: Você tem um mentor? Você fez isso nos anos de faculdade? 
Lee: 
No, I did not.  

P: Se você tivesse que fazer tudo de novo, ainda se concentraria em aplicações de nanotecnologia? 
Lee: 
Yes, because I has been happy with the work and am sure that nanotechnology will bring more benefits to society.   Q: If a high school or college student was interested in nanotechnology, what advice would you give them to help prepare take on those roles?   
Lee:
 Expand your studies in physics, chemistry, and biology, and get experience working with others.
