A marine biologist, Professor Leo Tan Wee Hin began his career in the University of Singapore as a Senior Tutor in 1973. He became a Lecturer in Zoology and Physiology in 1974. He was seconded to the Singapore Science Centre as CEO in 1982, concurrently holding his position as Senior Lecturer in The National University of Singapore (NUS). In 1991, he was appointed Associate Professor and Foundation Dean of Science in Nanyang Technological University, tasked to help build the new National Institute of Education (NIE) for teacher education. A full professorship came a year later, and in 1994, he was appointed the Director of NIE. In 2008, his career turned a complete cycle when he returned to NUS as Professor and Director (Special Projects) in the Science Dean's Office. He is conducting surveys of the marine life at the off-shore Semakau Landfill, working on interdisciplinary programmes, in the areas of environmental & biodiversity education and research.

His present leadership roles include Chair of the Garden City Fund, President of the Singapore National Academy of Science, Vice Chair of the Singapore Environmental Council and Chair of the Science Sub-Commission of the Singapore National Commission for UNESCO.
