Hello! My name is Isaac Sung and I teach computer and data science at Ripon College. I teach all of the required computer science courses and some electives, such as Introduction to Programming, Object-Oriented Programming, Data Structures & Algorithms, and Artificial Intelligence & Applied Machine Learning. One of my favorite electives to teach is Introduction to Video Game Development. My research interests include video game design, human-computer interaction, and computer science education.

I’m a mathematician by training. My dissertation and first published paper focused on Poisson Lie theory, which combines elements of algebra and differential geometry. In recent year, however, I have pivoted toward more applied topics–board game analysis, gerrymandering, applications of machine learning, for example. As a consequence, the tools I use have shifted from abstract arguments to computer simulations. I am especially interested in how Monte Carlo simulations, optimization algorithms, and machine learning techniques can be applied to real-world situations. I am also interested in how graphical representations of data can be used to support quantitative reasoning.

In my spare time, I enjoy challenging myself by trying new activities for which I have no natural ability. Recently, I have taken up long distance longboarding, and the fact that I am not good at it only increases my motivation. I also enjoy skate skiing, rock climbing, and mountain biking.
