Jongjin Kim, MS PhD Student, Educational Neuroscience
I am a first-year graduate student in the Educational Neuroscience concentration of the Educational Psychology program at the University of Alabama. Having been a high school math teacher in Korea, I found a number of students struggling with math despite their high performance. I am, therefore, interested in promoting student motivation in math courses, alleviating math anxiety among students, and designing conducive learning environments. My work currently focuses on analyzing EEG data as well as collecting behavioral and neural data from dynamic environments.
Research Interest : educational neuroscience, math anxiety, and constructionism.
