Jeonghoon Lee is an associate professor in the Department of Science Education (Earth Sciences) at Ewha Womans University. His research interests include isotopic evolution of meltwater, moisture transport with water vapor isotopes, glaciology, and groundwater geochemistry.

Lee is a co-principal investigator on the LIONESS-TG project. By sampling seawater, meltwater and snow, he and his team will identify different water masses around the Amundsen Sea with stable isotopes, and the observations will lead to a better understanding how much glacier waters contribute to sea level rise.
