Joohyung Lee

Lee_Joohyung_6408wAssociate Professor Joohyung Lee has been at ASU since 2005. His current research and teaching interests are in logic-based Artificial Intelligence. He works on knowledge representation and reasoning (studying how to encode knowledge into computers and let computers do reasoning like humans based on the encoded knowledge), logic programming (how to use logic directly as a programming language), common-sense reasoning (how to endow commonsense to computers) and declarative programming methods (programming focusing on what is to be computed, rather than how to compute it).


B.S.E., Computer Engineering, Seoul National University, 1998
