During her work at UIUC, Dr. Lee studied how rural context shapes women’s health in the rural mountainous Mogielica region of Poland, focusing on physical activity, reproductive history, and bone health. She also does research on workplace climate and culture, centering the experiences of people who are underrepresented in STEM workplaces. As a postdoctoral research scholar on the T32 training program in cancer prevention and control, Dr. Lee’s research will focus on rural cancer disparities and building a community-based research program with rural U.S. women.
