PeiZong Lee received a B.S. degree in mathematics from National Taiwan University in 1979, an M.S. degree in computer and decision sciences from National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan, in 1984, and a Ph.D. degree in computer science from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University, in 1989. Between 1984 and 1986, he was a research engineer at the Institute of Information Industry, Taiwan, where he participated in an artificial intelligence project. He joined with the Institute of Information Science, Academia Sinica in 1989, currently, he is a Research Fellow.
His research interests are in parallel algorithm design, compilers for scientific applications, and digital signal processing. He now also participates in a numerical wind tunnel project, in which he and other colleagues have to conquer researches for unstructured mesh generation, Euler equation and Navier-Stokes equation solvers, visualization, and the challenge of using MPI on a workstation cluster to accelerate the irregular computation.
