Kwonmoo Lee, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor, Ph.D. in Physics (Biophysics), Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  kleeBefore joining WPI, Kwonmoo Lee was an NIH post-doctoral fellow in Gaudenz Danuser’s lab at Harvard Medical School. He developed a non-invasive quantitative imaging approach which allowed him to probe a highly redundant system of actin nucleation pathways. Using this method he was able to define a temporal hierarchy of actin nucleator recruitment. Before that, he was trained in Marc Kirschner’s lab at Harvard Medical School as a graduate student in MIT Physics Ph.D. program. At WPI, he is focusing on applying various machine learning methods to cell biology and mechanobiology. Particularly, he is interested in how subcellular morphodynamic heterogeneity governs cell motility in healthy and pathological conditions. Currently, he is an NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute Certified Instructor and University Ambassador and an Editorial Board Member of Scientific Reports.   CV  (Email: klee at

Hee June Choi, Ph.D.

Research Scientist, Ph.D. in Molecular Biology, Seoul National University. Image uploaded from iOSHee June’s research will focus on understanding how cell migration plays a role in cancer and development. To this end, she will probe spatiotemporal dynamics of multiple proteins involved in cell motility by machine learning based quantitative live cell imaging techniques. She is fundamentally interested in the roles of stochasticity in maintaining robustness and evolvability of living systems.  She received her Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from Seoul National University in South Korea and joined WPI as a postdoctoral fellow in May 2015 after her previous postdoc experience in systems biology programs at Pohang University of Science and Technology and University of Massachusetts Medical School. 

Tzu-Hsi Song, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Fellow, Ph.D. in Computer Science, University of Warwick, UK. SongTzu-Hsi earned his in Computer Science from University of Warwick, UK in 2017. Then, he was a postdoctoral fellow in the School of Dentistry, University of Birmingham, UK. He joined WPI in March 2020 and he is developing a deep learning-based breast cancer diagnosis system using images from Lensless Digital Inline Holography System.
