Lee’s works have been published in academic journals and as book chapters. 
Also, he works on a new project, “Art and Data,” using an online-experiment and Machine Learning algorithm to examine the process of “valuing the valueless” and understand how different methodological approaches would answer different aspects of valuation. He teaches the sociology of entrepreneurship and the Organization and Society.
