I-Ling Yeh

Assistant Professor (Occupational therapy)


Dr. Yeh is an Assistant Professor in the Health and Social Sciences Cluster at the Singapore Institute of Technology and an occupational therapist by training. Additionally, she works as a Research Scientist at the Rehabilitation Research Institute of Singapore. Her research focuses on enhancing evaluation and interventions related to sensorimotor function and community participation for individuals with neurological conditions. Utilizing technology such as robotic devices, she explores ways to improve outcomes and investigates facilitators and barriers for telerehabilitation and technology adoption in Singapore. Beyond her academic roles, Dr. Yeh also serves as the Vice President Secretary of the Singapore Association of Occupational Therapists. In this capacity, she contributes to the association's mission of advancing the profession, advocating for clients and occupational therapists, and facilitating evidence-informed practices.
