Mohamed joined the Institute in 2020 to work on research related to ageing dynamics and estimating the cost of care, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa region. He is trained in engineering (MEng – Cairo University), computer science (MSc – Cairo University) and mathematical finance (MSc - CASS Business School). Mohamed started his career working as a quantitative analyst for leading global financial organisations, such as Merrill Lynch, HSBC, Mizuho and Credit Suisse, before he began to shift his focus onto quantitative social research.
