Dr Jim Lee

Sports Scientist, College of Health and Human Sciences

Be supervised by Jim

Dr Jim Lee commenced his undergraduate studies in Sport and Exercise Science in 2002 at the University of the Sunshine Coast QLD, and was awarded his PhD in 2010.

In the early years of his research career, Dr Lee’s work focused on micro technology development, particularly in swimming applications. In 2012, he spent the year at the Keio University in Japan, having won a Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Research Fellowship. Here, Dr Lee primarily investigated gait in lower limb amputees.

Since commencing at CDU, Dr Lee’s research has largely focused on wearable technology development, not only in sporting applications, but also for workplace and rehabilitation environments. He is also researching on using this technology to teach primary school children about STEM subjects.

Throughout 2016 and 2017, Dr Lee was the main driver at CDU for inclusion in the successful iMOVE cooperative research centre (CRC) bid. This is a national CRC that is aiming to improve all facets of transportation in Australia for the next 30 to 40 years. The main focus of Dr Lee’s work will not only be on driver safety, but also development of cattle monitoring during transportation.

In 2011, Dr Lee won the inaugural ICT Geelong CSIRO-AIS Prize for Best Sports Technology. He also has close to 50 journal and conference publications under his belt, mainly in the areas of swimming, gait, and inertial sensor development.
