Dr. Kyongje Sung

 

Dr. Kyongje Sung, Ph.D

Dr. Kyongje Sung 

 

Assistant Professor, Counseling, Special Education, and Neuroscience Division

kyongje.sung@ecae.ac.ae

Qualifications

  • Ph.D in Quantitative and Mathematical Psychology from Purdue University, Indiana, US
  • M.S in Cognitive Science from SungKyunKwan University, Seoul, South Korea
  • B.B.A in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from
    SungKyunKwan University, Seoul, South Korea

Profile

Dr. Kyongje Sung is an expert in Quantitative and Mathematical Psychology/Cognitive Neuroscience who joined ECAE in August 2020 after a decade of professional experience in several academic institutions across USA.

Dr. Sung received his graduate training at Purdue University, after which he joined the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience at Duke University in North Carolina as a postdoctoral associate. In 2008, he joined the Division of Cognitive Neurology/Neuropsychology in the Department of Neurology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine as a postdoctoral fellow. Later in 2010, he was promoted to a faculty position as a research associate.

Dr. Sung’s research topics include diverse levels of human information processing, from low-level visual perception to the higher cognitive functions, of healthy individuals and people with a mental condition, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and autism. He adapted computational (simulation), electrophysiologic (EEG), and behavioral analysis (reaction times) techniques to answer the research questions.

His recent research focuses on the electrophysiologic investigation of early visual perception of individuals with autism, especially those with low-functioning autism. The main goal of Dr. Sung’s recent research effort is to identify the defining electrophysiologic characteristics in people with autism and to test non-invasive intervention methods, such as transcranial direct/alternating current stimulation (tDCS/tACS), as a potential intervention tool.

Dr. Sung received his Ph.D. from Purdue University in 2005 in Quantitative and Mathematical Psychology applied to human visual perception and attention. Before his time at Purdue, Dr. Sung received M.S in Cognitive Science from SungKyunKwan University, South Korea, and B.B.A in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from the same university.

Dr. Joseph Seyram Agbenyega

Associate Professor in the Counseling, Special Education and Neuroscience Division

Profile

Dr Joseph Seyram Agbenyega is an Associate Professor in the Counseling, Special Education and Neuroscience Division at Emirates College for Advanced Education (ECAE). He is currently the Research Chair at ECAE. Dr Agbenyega is a certified Teacher Educator with more than 25 years of experience. He started his career as an elementary school teacher in 1990. He obtained his Professional Doctorate (EdD) from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia in 2005. Prior to joining ECAE, Dr Agbenyega worked at University of Ghana from 2006-2007 and at Monash University from 2008 to 2020. He was the Director of Graduate Research Education and Chair of Examiners, Graduate Research Education from 2017-2020.
The focus of his research is the psychological and sociological understandings of educational inclusion and inequality among children and youth. At the micro level, he explores the impact of teacher dispositions, cultural and family practices on inclusive teaching and learning. At the macro level, he explores how policy and government support for education orchestrate educational equity and quality. He is interested in understanding how the worldwide problem of underachievement and exclusion of children and youth with a disability and/or significant learning needs can be addressed. He applies both qualitative and quantitative methodologies with diverse theoretical perspectives including critical theory, postcolonial theory, Bordieuan theory and cultural historical theory to his research.
Dr Agbenyega has international research networking with several universities, including Mahidol University, Thailand; Monash University, Australia, University of Ghana; University of Cape Coast, Ghana, Millersville University, PA, USA and Universitas Negeri Jakarta (UNJ). He has published widely in his field of expertise.
