Sungyoung Kim, Ph.D., is an assistant professor in the Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering Technology Department. He joined RIT in August 2012 and was most previously a research associate for Yamaha Corporation in Hammamatsu, Japan. Initiated from working experience of a broadcasting audio engineer, Kim studied interaction of capturing methods and musical contents and their influence on listener’s preference of multichannel-delivered sound fields during his Ph.D. study. Later Kim was invited to Yamaha Corporation to investigate various rendering methods for listeners’ enhanced auditory impressions. His recent interests cover the auditory depth control integrated with 3-D visual display, the perceptual process and the associated attributes that provide convincing immersive sound fields, the brain response to immersive sound field, and the training methods of faster acquisition of critical listening ability. Kim is an active member of the Audio Engineering Society and was awarded the Japan Award in 2009 by the Japanese Audio Engineering Society.
