Natrah has taught a range of courses from foundation to undergraduate modules in public and private universities in Malaysia and abroad. She was previously affiliated with King AbdulAziz University (KAU) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM), and SEGI University Malaysia. Natrah holds a PhD from the National University of Malaysia and a Master's Degree from the University of Malaya.

Natrah's research interests are broadly focused on the use of language beyond context, particularly in the representation of marginalised group. She is particularly interested in applying the Critical Discourse Studies (CDS) approach to explore and investigate the ways in which systemic power, dominance, and inequality are enacted, reproduced, and resisted through language.
