Suwana Watt, Research Audiologist

Suwana started with the Translation Hearing Research team, led by Professor Colette McKay, as a Research Audiologist in 2023.

She assists the team with audiological testing of infants for the EarGenie® clinical trial.

EarGenie uses functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) technology to measure auditory cortical activity in infants.

The clinical trial is aiming to determine the utility of EarGenie tests for families and audiologists in guiding them along the hearing care pathway.

Suwana has worked extensively in clinical paediatrics and helping children and families, spanning the acute to primary health care settings.

She has worked in perioperative and neonatal nursing care, and then as a specialist paediatric audiologist for Hearing Australia.

As an infant hearing aid fitting audiologist, she is aware of the critical importance of appropriately fitted amplification.

This enables an effective family-centred early intervention program, so that children with hearing loss can develop to their full potential.

Suwana holds a Master of Audiology Studies, and a Master of Public Health in Epidemiology and Biostatistics, both from the University of Queensland.
