Academic Profile

Dr. Wei Xing (Noah) Toh is a visiting postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University (USA) and the recipient of the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences International Postdoctoral Scholarship from Nanyang Technological University (Singapore). His research interests primarily focus on cognitive and emotional control, and how these processes unfold with advancing age. A second line of research explores cognitive, social, and health outcomes associated with technology use (e.g., smartphones, video games, etc.). Importantly, the outcomes of his research program could potentially inform intervention programs and policies that aim to improve the quality of life across adulthood.
