Biography

Yuhan was part of the inaugral batch of students of the MSc Audiology programme at the National University of Singapore (NUS). She was a recipient of the Ministry of Health Holdings Healthcare Graduate Studies Award and upon graduation in 2015, worked as a clinical audiologist at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital (NTFGH) for five and a half years. In 2017, she spent two months at Ear Science Institute Australia training in implant audiology, under the Healthcare Manpower Development Program. Following this attachment, she served as the implant audiology lead at NTFGH.

In 2021, Yuhan left her clinical role and joined the NUS Audiology team as a research associate with the Healthy Hearing, Healthy Ageing project. She was involved in questionnaire design for a quantitative study on help-seeking behaviours among the elderly population and in survey administration for the implementation phase of the boothless audiometry protocol.

Yuhan has also served actively in the community, volunteering her time toward hearing screening and public education events. She has served on the committee of the Society for Audiology Professionals (Singapore) since 2017, first as secretary and as president since 2019. She has organized educational events for the audiology community and is overseeing the development of best practice guidelines to advocate for higher standards in clinical practice across Singapore.

In 2022, Yuhan was selected for a dual-award PhD studentship between the University of Manchester and the University of Melbourne to study the real-life benefits of hearing-preservation cochlear implantation (HPCI) in children. She hopes to return to Singapore after her studies to teach at her alma mater.
