Additional Positions at AUCenter for Teaching, Research, and Learning
- Dr. Lee's work crosses disciplines to reflect the complex world we live in. His August 2009 book, "Climate Change and Armed Conflict: Hot and Cold Wars", is a ground breaking look at the nexus of social problems that will result from climate change. His prior book examined the interplay of trade, environment, and culture. His views carry a policy perspective, from experience at the US EPA and USTR.
