Congratulations to Noorfaadhilah Abdul Halil Khan who will be joining Home Team Behavioural Sciences Centre (Ministry of Home Affairs) as a research psychologist from February 2021. We are immensely proud of her, and wish her the best in this new chapter of her life!
Congratulations to Noorfaadhilah Abdul Halil Khan on her M.Soc.Sci. degree! Faadhilah is currently part of the teaching staff in the Department of Psychology at NUS. For her thesis research, she examined antecedents to people’s interest in reasoning about the censorship of hate speech and misinformation. Her research demonstrated that the more people’s attitudes serve to express their core personal values, the greater their interest in relying on their beliefs and thoughts in their opinion on censorship. This work suggests that highlighting or reinforcing personal values can enhance reasoning about censorship among both anti- and pro-censorship individuals. We congratulate Faadhilah on accomplishing this interesting research on a timely issue!
