AGYA Alumni Jointly building bridges into the future
I work as an Associate Professor at the Department of Economics, at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala, and as a Senior Economist at the Nordic Africa Institute, Swedish Foreign Ministry. In addition, I am an Associate Professor at Arish University in Egypt (currently on sabbatical).
My work in the recent years has focused on the economics and sustainable management of natural resources; food and agricultural trade and trade policy analysis; supply and demand analysis of food and agricultural commodities and commodity markets; and the political economy of food and agriculture. Currently, my main research focuses on investigating the dynamics of urban sprawl in relation to land-use changes, food production systems, and food security in arid and semi-arid zones.
