Dr. Richard Sundheim came to St. Cloud State University in 1988 joining the Mathematics and Statistics Department. He transferred to the IS Department in 2001. He teaches statistics and data mining. Prior to SCSU, he taught for seven years in the Statistics Department at Kansas State University where half of his assignment was as a statistical consultant to the Agricultural Experiment Station. He has spent over 20 years programming in the SAS language and in recent years he has been ‘mining’ a lot of data using SAS.
