MCS Friend Profile: Choong-Soo Lee

I taught computer science as a visiting assistant professor from 2010 until 2013. I am currently an assistant professor of computer science at St. Lawrence University, which is a liberal arts college like Gustavus Adolphus College, and I am one of the three computer scientists who teach a wide range of courses from introductory programming to advanced topics such as operating systems and networking. My research area is still in multimedia and networking, and recent papers include analyses of champion usage and bot prevalence in League of Legends.
