Yihsin Tai Honored with Three Travel Awards
Yihsin Tai, a Ph.D. student in the Department of Speech and Hearing Science studying under Dr. Fatima Husain, has been honored with two travel awards for upcoming conferences.
She received a $1,500 travel award to attend and present at the 2017 VA/NCRAR conference on "Translating Tinnitus Research Findings into Clinical Practice" to be held in Portland, Oregon. More information about this conference can be found at the NCRAR Conference website.
She also is the recipient of a $500 Audiology/Hearing Science Research Travel Award (ARTA) to attend and present at the 2017 ASHA Convention in Los Angeles, California.
In addition, Yihsin has been selected to receive a $500 Student Research Travel award (SRTA) to attend the ASHA Convention.
Yihsin’s research interests involve the effects of tinnitus on physiological assessments such as auditory evoked potentials, especially for normal hearing people. She is particularly interested in knowing the relationship between tinnitus and various physiological assessments, how these factors correlate with each other, and how they can be used clinically as part of tinnitus assessment and rehabilitation protocol.
