I am currently a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Economics, and the Course Leader of the BSc (Honours) Economics programme at Sheffield Business School in Sheffield Hallam University.

I undertook my undergraduate work in Faculty of Economics and Political Science at Cairo University in Egypt. I hold the degrees of MA (distinction) in Economics from the American University in Cairo and MSc (distinction) in Economics and Econometrics from the University of Exeter, where I also obtained my PhD in Economics on ‘Long Memory Time Series and Fractional Cointegration Analysis’. My main areas of research interest include: Econometric theory; time series analysis; semiparametric inference; financial econometrics; macroeconomics; monetary economics; energy economics and international economics. I am also a reviewer for Eurasian Economic Review, Springer.

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and I taught Economics for over ten years. My main teaching areas are in econometrics, time series analysis, statistics, mathematical economics and macroeconomics.  Prior to joining Sheffield Hallam University, I taught at University of Exeter: Econometrics, statistics and mathematical economics at undergraduate level and quantitative methods of finance at graduate level. I am currently leading and teaching three modules at Sheffield Hallam University: ‘Advanced Topics in Macroeconomics’ and ‘Econometrics for Business and Economics’ for final year undergraduate students, and ‘Maths for Economics’ for first year undergraduate students. 

I have supervised and guided many MSc, MBA and MRes students throughout completion of their dissertation projects. I would be happy to hear from potential PhD students working on any areas of my research interest for supervision.
