I am an Egyptian mathematician, recovering quant, and inadvertent economist. My main research interests are in behavioral economics and decision theory, with a focus on applications in the financial market. 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 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.
