Batool is a certified Carpentry instructor and a core contributor to The Turing Way, an open-source community-driven guide to reproducible, ethical and collaborative data science and organisers for the tutorials in International Society for Computational Biology. As an advocate for Open Science and its role in improving scientific and economic outputs in the Middle East, she established an Open Science Community in Saudi Arabia (OSCSA). OSCSA aims to create significant value towards Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030, which focuses on enhancing knowledge and improving equal access to education in the Kingdom. In this incubator, she is exploring the limitation of the current digital infrastructure to adopt FAIR data practice in Arabic-speaking countries and identifying the needs of the local community to drive the creation of policy that fosters a FAIR data culture while maximising the accessibility, and functionality of the local data and scientific outputs.
