Isaac is a Software Engineer at Microsoft and a Research Assistant at Texas Tech University. When at Texas Tech University he was an undergraduate researcher and student organizer. He is the former president of the Software Development Club at Texas Tech as well as the Texas Tech Innovation Mentorship & Entrepreneurship organization.
The Software Development Club grew from a group of casual collaborators to several teams that adhered to rigorous industry standards. At the end of his tenure he helped organize a merger with the local ACM chapter. Many of the students who were heavily involved in the Software Development Club have gone on to successful careers (including several who went to companies like Google, Microsoft, or strong startups).
He has taken part in and helped run 3 Day Startup at TTU, and attempted to get the computer science department to use an auto-grading system for programming assignments. He has also worked with the department to suggest a new elective course that would give students more hands-on problem solving experience (based on 80 student responses saying they wanted the course).
His software development experience includes machine learning, data science, and working with the Linux kernel. He has interned at Microsoft and National Instruments.
