Dr. Yann-Hang Lee


Yann-Hang Lee received his Ph.D. degree in Computer, Information, and Control Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, in 1984. From December 1984 to August 1988, he was a research staff member at the Architecture Analysis and Design Group, IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY. He joined Computer and Information Sciences Department, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, in 1988, and is currently a professor in the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering, Arizona State University. Since 2008, he has served as the Program Chair of the Computer Science and Engineering Program in the School.

Dr. Lee's research interests are in the areas of real-time computing, embedded systems, software engineering, distributed systems, and performance evaluation. Currently, his research projects are focused on various software issues of mission and safety critical real-time embedded systems, service-oriented distributed embedded systems, and system support for embedded software. He co-edited three special issues in Real-time Systems in IEEE Computer (May 1992), IEEE Proceedings (Jan. 1994), and IEEE Proceedings (July, 2003). He was a program co-chair for the Real-time Systems Symposium, 1995, conference co-chair for the Real-time Systems Symposium, 1996, and a program co-chair of the Sixth IEEE International Symposium on Autonomous Decentralized Systems, 2003.
