Dr. Yeo Su-Jan

Dr. Yeo Su-Jan began her urban planning career in the public sector, working on community development projects at the provincial and federal levels of the Canadian government in Vancouver and Ottawa. Dr. Yeo’s graduate studies were undertaken in Sydney where she obtained her Master in Urban Development and Design from the University of New South Wales on a 1-year Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship. Shortly thereafter, she continued on the urban planning track by specialising in land use zoning and development policies as an urban planner at the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore. Most recently, Dr. Yeo completed her Ph.D. in Architecture from the School of Design and Environment at the National University of Singapore on a 4-year NUS Research Scholarship. Currently, Dr. Yeo is exploring the relationship between social diversity, urban liveability, and public space design of neighbourhood nightscapes through visual methods of urban analysis.

Dr. Yeo is also currently working with an editor and book publisher to produce an anthology of Singapore’s urban planning story. The book will feature essays authored by Singapore’s pioneer generation of architects and urban planners as well as current experts in the field of urban development. The book will be launched in 2015 to commemorate Singapore’s 50 years of independence. Additionally, Dr. Yeo is extending the scope of her PhD research and publishing further from new findings and conceptual insights.
