Alfred Lee earned a Ph.D. in Physics from The University of Texas at Austin with a certification in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Prior to that, he earned a B.A. in Physics and an M.Eng. in Materials Science and Engineering from Cornell University. He has since worked in the private and social sectors and is currently an independent consultant specializing in data science and technology strategy. Ever curious about nature, complexity, plurality, and ways of knowing, his research interests fall along the lines of philosophy of science, metascience, complex systems, cognitive science, science and technology studies, and social criticism. He has taught several technical and modern scientific topics including relativity and data analysis to both specialist and lay audiences.
