Dr. Kevin Yuen Chi-pun
Dr. Yuen has a strong research interest in sound perception and speech recognition of children with normal hearing and children with deafness and hard-of-hearing (DHH) in both quiet and noise environments. He investigated the contribution of frequency-specific temporal envelope and periodicity components (without any fine structure components) for lexical tone recognition in normal hearing and DHH listeners. Dr. Yuen developed the Cantonese Lexical Neighborhood Test, the Computerized Cantonese Disyllabic-word Lexical Tone Identification Test in Noise, and the Computerized Mandarin Pediatric Lexical tone & Disyllabic-word Picture identification test in Noise to serve the Cantonese- and Mandarin- speaking populations in Hong Kong and Mainland China.
