I am an Egyptian mathematician, recovering quant, and inadvertent financial economist. My main research interests are in behavioral finance, decision theory, and sustainability in financial markets. Most recently, my research is focusing on socially responsible or "moral" markets: their microeconomic theoretical foundations as well as their macroeconomic empirical implications. My PhD is in abstract nonsense from the University of Cambridge, where I also completed Part III of the Mathematical Tripos.
I am based at the Institute of Economics, part of the School of Economics and Political Science (SEPS) at the University of St. Gallen, where I am an Assistant Professor of Quantitative Economics. I am also a Faculty Member of the Swiss Finance Institute and an Affiliated Researcher at the Consortium for Data Analytics in Risk (CDAR) (based at the Department of Economics) at the University of California at Berkeley.
