Dr. Sisson’s research articles in the area of infinite-dimensional topological vector spaces have appeared in Studia Mathematica and the Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society. His interests also include such diverse areas as math pedagogy and mathematical art, with articles appearing in Mathematics Magazine, College Mathematics Journal, and the Journal of Mathematics and the Arts.

Dr. Sisson published his first math textbook with Hawkes, College Algebra, in 2003, followed by Precalculus in 2006, College Algebra: A Concise Approach in 2011 and Calculus with Early Transcendentals in 2016.
