Thank you for visiting my web site. Here is a brief about me. After graduation, I worked as a teaching assistant at Helwan University, Egypt, from 1994-2002. Then I traveled to complete my graduate studies through a competitive funded scholarship. I started my studies in the USA with a master’s degree in economics at Texas A&M University- College Station, 2004. Afterwards, I got my PhD in economics from Colorado State University in 2009.  In August 2010, I got a position as assistant professor at Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania, later on, I was appointed as an assistant professor at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals in Saudi Arabia during 2010-2013.

I joined Qatar University as an assistant professor in September 2013. Subsequently, I was promoted to Associate Professor in March 2016 and a Professor in October 2022. In research, I lead and co-lead many refereed funded research projects in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar. My research appears in referred journals like Sustainability, Energy Journal (IAEE), Energy Economics, Energy policy, Urban Water Journal, Journal of Futures Markets, International Review of Economics and Finance, among many. My research interests fall in the following fields: Sustainability, Energy & Environmental Policy, Behavioral Economics and Financial Markets. Our proposed solutions were featured as a policy brief on the United Nations in May 2023. As for my personal life, I am highly conscious of my health and well-being; that being said, I try my best to keep a balanced diet and a reasonable amount of exercise. I show great pride and passion in my work and will continue to show that positive attitude through work.
