Greetings, this is the online portfolio of Jeff Lee (aka Ting-Uei Lee). Jeff is a postdoc research fellow at the RMIT University, Australia. His research involves using computational design techniques to concisely and accurately produce complex structural forms. Applications include origami-inspired structures, curved-crease compliant mechanisms, deployable structures, and modular housings. Jeff is also an illustrator, capable of making 3D technical and 2D cartoon figures. You can contact Jeff via Email, Facebook, or LinkedIn.
