Marty Sung is a Ph.D. candidate in city and regional planning program in Georgia Tech and his major research interest is exploring how geographic information systems (G.I.S.) and database applications can be to simulate and model urban land use change in accordance with sustainable development and and project future at urban and regional scale depending on various urban growth policies.
Marty has involved in various research projects related to seismic risk assessments, sustainable infrastructure network of energy-water systems and urban land use change modeling at metro scale using G.I.S. applications. Currently, he is working on his dissertation focusing on developing GI S applications and models to project urban water use based on various urban growth-policy scenarios supporting sustainable urban development in metro Atalanta, GA. He also teaches multiple GIS courses, Introduction to GIS, Advanced GIS, and Environmental GIS at Georgia Tech. He works at the Center for Geographic Information Systems at Georgia Tech as a graduate researcher and instructor under the supervision of Professor Steven P. French. He received a B.S. (1998) and a M.S. (2000) in urban engineering from Hanyang University, Seoul, Korea, and master’s degree in city and regional planning (2004) from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey.
