Do Jun Lee

Do Jun Lee is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Urban Studies at Queens College CUNY. As an environmental psychologist, his work and teaching critically examines the interrelationships of people, (im)mobilities, environment, and social justice. His research over the last several years has focused on a participatory action research project with the Biking Public Project and immigrant food delivery cyclists in NYC to examine the mobility and labor experiences in the NYC streets from the food delivery worker perspective. This research helped spark the #DeliverJustice Coalition of food delivery workers and community organizations to mobilize an ultimately successful campaign to legalize food delivery worker e-bikes in response to Mayor de Blasio’s police crackdown against these electric bikes. Do has also been involved in critical engagements of mobility and transportation scholarship such as The Untokening and the Mobility Justice Research Network.
