Short Bio
** I am recruiting graduate students for Fall 2023 **

Tae-Ho Lee is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Virginia Tech. He received his PhD in Brain Cognitive Science in the Department of Psychology from the University of Southern California and M.A. in Clinical Psychology from Korea University. He is the recipient of the APS’ “Rising Star” award in 2020. His research focuses on 1) what and how neural developments occur during the adolescence with the consideration of significant others’ neural level influence in the brain and 2) how the affective system in the brain changes as children get developed.
