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.

  • Ph.D., University of Nebraska-Lincoln
  • M.S., University of Nebraska-Lincoln
  • B.S., University of Iowa

Born and raised in Illinois, I was the first person in my family to graduate from college. I have a passion for science which I love to share with students. My background is in Soft Condensed Matter Physics and Biophysics. My research now focuses on how liquid dynamics can modify and regulate biological processes. I have had a very diverse career that allowed me to work closely with researchers in other disciplines such as biology, chemistry, and medicine. This experience has informed my teaching and mentoring of undergraduate research students. I aim to demonstrate to students in other majors, how physics can inform topics in their own disciplines.

I received my undergraduate degree in Physics in 2002 at Doane College in Crete, NE, which is a school very similar to Ripon. After graduating I continued studying physics and received my Ph.D. from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2007. After completing my Ph.D. I joined the group of Nobel prize winner Prof. Ahmed Zewail at Caltech as a postdoctoral researcher where I worked on developing ultrafast electron microscopy (UEM) techniques. Over the last 10 years or so that I have been a professor, I have taught most courses that are offered at the undergraduate level, with one of my favorites being Quantum Mechanics. Outside the classroom I strive to create opportunities for students and have worked with ~30 paid undergraduate summer researchers on a variety of projects. My research primarily focuses on studying the fundamental quantum properties of electrons/light interactions.
