Expert Profile


Sarah binti Rahmat obtained her Bachelor in Audiology with First Class Honors from International Islamic University Malaysia in 2010. She was the recipient of the Best Student of Audiology Award during the 26th IIUM convocation. She joined IIUM as an Assistant Lecturer in the Department of Audiology and Speech Language Pathology, in 2010.
In 2011, she pursued her Ph.D in Audiology at the University of Canterbury. After three and a half years, she was awarded a Ph.D in May, 2015. Due to her excellenctresearch in developing a new psychophysical method for measuring non-linear cochlear function, was invited to present her work in the "Celebration and Showcase of Hearing and Vestibular Research in New Zealand" symposium which was held in September, 2015.
Her undergraduate research, as well as her Ph.D work have resulted in two local and six international conference presentations, as well as two publications. She hopes to be much involved and contribute to future audiology and hearing research in the area of psychoacoustic, cochlear physiology/mechanics, preservation of residual hearing in cochlear implant surgery and enhancement of student learning via simulated training.
