Jisun Lee, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of Interior Design at the School of Planning, Design and Construction at Michigan State University. After earning her Ph.D. in Interior Architecture and Built Environment from Yonsei University, South Korea, she worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Human-Centered Design (formerly Design and Environmental Analysis) at Cornell University. Dr. Lee has 15 years of practice experience as an interior designer and project manager in South Korea, working on numerous national and international projects.

Dr. Lee's research aims to enhance the healing properties of built environments. Her studies focus on the impact of environmental factors on human health and well-being in various contexts, including healthcare facilities and hospitality environments. Her work involves design evaluations using emerging technologies, such as virtual, augmented, and mixed reality, as well as biosensors. Recently, she has been exploring the influence of nature in indoor environments on users' emotional and cognitive responses and behaviors. She also has been examining the effects of emerging technologies in design education.
