Spencer Yeh, and maintains ongoing collaborations with Conrad Tao, Victoria Shen, and Eric Wubbels.

Lee has performed at Lincoln Center, ISSUE Project Room, the Kitchen, Roulette, and MoMA PS1, and participated in festivals including Resonant Bodies, Huddersfield Contemporary, and Ende Tymes. She has been featured in group exhibitions including The Moon Represents My Heart: Music, Memory and Belonging at the Museum of Chinese in America (2019). As a composer, Lee has been commissioned by the International Contemporary Ensemble, Wet Ink Ensemble, and Spektral Quartet.
