Dr. Robyn S. Lee is an infectious disease epidemiologist and applied bioinformatician, with a primary appointment in public health at the Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services in Québec, Canada. Dr. Lee’s area of research focuses on integrating classical epidemiology, genomics and bioinformatics approaches to understand infectious disease transmission dynamics and identify risk factors for infection, in order to inform clinical and public health interventions. She has worked extensively on Mycobacterium tuberculosis – particularly among the Inuit in Northern Canada – as well as other pathogens of public health importance, including community and hospital-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Mycobacterium abscessus and vancomycin-resistant enterococci, among others.
