Andrew Lee joined the Space Structures Lab in 2019. He is focused on the stability and deployment of ultra-thin coilable shell structures. Research interests include composite structures, nonlinear dynamics, elastic stability, and smart materials.   

 In 2019, Andrew completed his Ph.D. in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan. His research was on developing a novel method for inducing multi-stability in composite laminates with piezoelectric actuators. Applications were in quasi-static morphing, broadband energy harvesting, and active control of nonlinear vibrations. He also completed his M.S.E. and B.S.E. in the same department in 2013 and 2012, respectively, and was at Raytheon Missile Systems until 2015.
