Anthony Pak Hin Kong, associate professor of communication sciences and disorders, is the first recipient of a new honor bestowed by the UCF Office of Research and Commercialization.

The office announced last week that Kong had earned its new United Nations Award for having the most foreign collaborators in 2014-15.
Kong collaborated last year with researchers from four international organizations on his study titled “Toward a Multi-modal and Multi-level Analysis of Chinese Aphasic Discourse,” funded by the National Institutes of Health.
The researchers were affiliated with the following organizations:

  • Chinese University of Hong Kong
  • University of Hong Kong
  • PolyU Technology and Consultancy Co. in Hong Kong
  • National University of Ireland

The office made the announcement at its annual UCF Millionaires Club celebration, held Nov. 12 (photo below).
