Nour Al-muhtasib

Hello! I am an Assistant Professor at the University of San Fransisco. I teach General Biology and Physiology.

A little about me...

  • I grew up in the DC/Maryland/Virginia area, where I attended undergraduate and graduate school.

  • I am passionate about making academia an inclusive place in regards to race, sexual identity and orientation, and religious beliefs.

  • Due to my own personal journey, I want to work on making academia a nurturing environment that doesn't foster toxicity or poor mental health.

  • Writing poetry has been a hobby of mine since I was a little child. Now I write poems, articles, and long Twitter threads.
