Norah is a postdoc fellow studying factors that effects genome compartmentalization and organization. She is also interested in understanding the consequences of environmental toxicants in epigenetic regulation.
Norah completed her MS in 2015 at the Biology department of Taibah University in Saudi Arabia, then joined the Genetic & Environmental Toxicology group at King’s College London, UK in 2017 where she studied key genes involved in toxic metals detoxification and essential metal homeostasis (e.g. Cd and Zn) as well as, investigated transgenerational effects of toxic metals exposure. After the completion of her PhD research in 2022, Norah moved to KAUST, Saudi Arabia to expand her knowledge of the basic principles of epigenetic regulation of the genome.
