Warren J. Lee is a research engineer II at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI). He has 15 years of experience in unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) research, advanced system development and aerodynamic research.

Lee is a pioneering member of GTRI's UAV lab, where he has worked on autonomous flight, payload integration and testing, and advanced aerodynamics since 1998. He joined the lab as an aerospace engineering co-op student and was later hired as a research engineer in 2002.

In 2009, Lee took a position with Northrop Grumman as a project test engineer 2, where he worked with the Naval variant of the Global Hawk known as BAMS (Broad Area Maritime Surveillance) and also worked with the system test division, where he became familiar with the sub-systems of the Global Hawk.

Upon returning to GTRI in 2010, Lee resumed his work with unmanned systems and became the flight test engineer for flight operations of the Collaborative Unmanned Systems Technology Demonstration (CUSTD) fleet of aircraft, as well as the GAUSS and Boomer aircraft. He has directed numerous flight tests with many more planned in the future.
