Dr. Hadija Mohd is a Faculty member and ASB’s Senior Lecturer. She has been with ASB since 2018. Prior to ASB, she has had a decade of inter-disciplinary and inter-departmental professional working experiences, namely as a university lecturer, college tutor, international schoolteacher, genetic lab researcher, research historian as well as a corporate consultant and a management trainer. Hadija’s journey in ASB has been very unique and unconventional. She started off as part of the original Academic Associate (AA) team managing professors and students in all course-related tasks, inside and outside of classrooms. Later, she transitioned to lead the AA team as the team’s Head. Within this same period of time, Dr. Hadija was given multiple platforms to teach various different classes from history to culture to management to research tools. Now, she is an official member of the Faculty team as a Senior Lecturer specializing in Action Learning, Summer Associate Program and courses/activities related to Culture, History and general management.

Dr. Hadija’s most recent research that is currently ongoing is on the ethnology of the volunteers on the Malaysian Vaccination Program. Being part of the Malaysia Vaccine Support Volunteer (MyVac) herself from June 2021 to August 2021, she has been immersed in her observation and experience in the operations of the national vaccination program. However, what struck her the most was the intention, motivation, aspiration and incentives of the volunteers. She is currently analysing her collected data and is looking to reach as many audiences as possible on the insights of this historical moment in our lifetime. She is also currently planning to expand the study to other Covid-19 related programs; namely volunteers from the Covid Assessment Centre (CAC) and the Kuala Lumpur Hospital One-Stop Centre (Pusara HKL).

Hadija has a Ph.D. and Masters degree in History and Civilization as well as a Bachelor in Biomedical Science from the International Islamic University Malaysia (UIAM). Her academic and teaching background includes Islamic History, World History, Asian and Malaysian History, Islamic Studies, Fatwa Studies, Medical Sciences (Anatomy, Physiology, Microbiology, Biochemistry), General Sciences and the Humanities (Geography, Social Studies, Global Perspectives). Passionate about History, Hadija is a member of the Malaysian History Society (Persatuan Sejarah Malaysia) and is working to have several of her manuscripts and work in history published. Her other most recent works that will are undergoing refinement and waiting to be published are:

“The course of authority & legal status of Islamic jurisdiction in Malaya in the late 1800s to early 1900s”, “The role of intellectual Islamic opinions & fatwa in Malaysia in the first half of the 20th century” and “Mufti and fatwa in post-colonial & modern-day Malaysia”
