Hello and welcome to my personal website. My name is Jonathan Lee, and I am an electrical engineer working in the R&D department for Triumph Aerospace Systems Seattle. I’ve been working for Triumph for over 2.5 years, developing the next generation of power electronics and electric machines for aerospace applications.
In 2011, I completed my master’s degree in electrical engineering with a graduate certificate in energy analysis, and policy (EAP) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.My research interests focus on system analysis for electric power systems, renewable energy sources, and public policy issues concerning energy technology and innovation.

The website is a compilation of work and accomplishments from my undergraduate and graduate work at the University of Wisconsin Madison and beyond. During undergrad, I was highly active in the Engineers Without Borders Chapter at UW (EWB-UW), working with the Rwanda project, and traveling to Muramba, Rwanda in July 2007 as student project manager. In graduate school, I continued my work with the EWB-UW chapter, being involved with the Bayonnais, Haiti project, traveling to the country in January 2011. During this trip in Haiti, we witnessed, first-hand, the physical and social disasters and disruptions created by the 7.0 magnitude earthquake near Haiti’s capitol, Port Au Prince.
Notably, in April 2010, a team project entry, called the Microformer, won the Climate Leadership Challenge Grand Prize. I continue to work with this group, expanding our ideas beyond our initial vision.
