Marty Sung's major research interest is exploring how geographic information systems (G.I.S.) and database applications can be used to simulate future land use change depending on different energy and climate change policies on both urban and regional scales.

Marty is involved in several research projects related to seismic risk assessments and urban land use change modeling at metro scale using G.I.S. applications. Recently, he has delved into the topic of comprehensive energy and carbon footprint analyses for sustainable urban development types. He works at the Center for Geographic Information Systems at Georgia Tech as a research and teaching assistant 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, Korea, and master’s degree in City and Regional Planning (2004) from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. Aside from his academic life, he loves spring, wine, coffee, photography, and above all, his family.
