SangHyun Lee, Ph.D., A.M.ASCE, is the recipient of the Daniel W. Halpin Award for Scholarship in Construction for demonstrating outstanding scholarship in construction engineering and management through groundbreaking research in computer simulation and information technology, and its application to the construction industry. John L. Tishman CM Faculty Scholar in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Michigan, Lee has successfully established research programs and pursued fundamental new knowledge in automatic behavior monitoring for analysis of construction fatalities and injuries, as well as feedback between individual absence behavior and absence culture. In addition, he has pursued research on interface management, work posture monitoring and evaluation, and disaster preparedness in the context of facility management. Taking into account the prevalent time and cost overrun in large-scale civil infrastructure projects, Lee’s efforts on monitoring and control for effective and efficient project delivery are very timely and have greatly contributed to addressing how such large-scale project development can be both cost-effective and time-effective. His work has focused on intelligent and real-time project monitoring and control for large-scale civil infrastructure development and rehabilitation projects. Chair of ASCE/Construction Institute’s (CI) Construction Research Council and as a member of the CI Board of Governors, Lee’s doctoral work centered on the understanding and management of iterative error and change cycles in concurrent design and construction projects using System Dynamics, a computer simulation methodology. This research led to an in-depth understanding of iterative error and change cycles, as well as to advances made with respect to how to effectively manage them. His doctoral research resulted in 2 U.S. patents and 7 journal papers.
