She holds a Bachelor of Applied Science in Energy Management from the University of Otago. Lee has published in areas including drivers of residential solar adoption, predictors of intent to adopt electric vehicles, and spillover effects from food waste reduction to increases in household energy efficiency. In 2018 she joined the School of Environment and Natural Resources as a Post-Doc and member of the Environmental and Social Sustainability Lab. She is currently involved in projects examining drivers of electric vehicle vs. conventional vehicle adoption, predictors of trust in autonomous vehicles, factors that impact household acceptance of demand-side response, and the extent to which demand-side response measures may exacerbate energy poverty.
