Dr. Lee is an Assistant Professor in the School of Criminal Justice at Grand Valley State University. She earned a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Police Administration at Kyonggi University in Korea, and a Ph.D. in Criminal Justice at Michigan State University, where she studied partner-abused women’s interactions with police and their ongoing decisions to use police services. Her primary research interests involve intimate partner violence, policing, and victims’ help-seeking in the criminal justice system. Specifically, she is interested in the quality of victim-police interactions and procedural fairness in dealing with intimate partner violence and whether it affects victims’ decisions to seek help from the police for future violence. In addition, she is interested in examining the crime control effects of criminal sanctions on recidivism as well as exploring and applying various quantitative data analysis techniques.
