About Me

PhD Candidate, School of Urban Planning, McGill University, Montreal, Canada

I am currently completing a PhD in Urban Planning, Policy and Design at the School of Urban Planning at McGill University, under the supervision of Prof. Ahmed El-Geneidy.

I specialize in the areas of transport & land use planning, public transport planning & operations, and GIS applications in planning to develop effective policies that contribute to a more livable and sustainable society. I desire to build on my expertise in transport, to advance policies that respond to current and future mobility challenges.

I completed a Master’s degree in Geography from the University of Toronto, with a focus on pedestrian planning and policy implications for children and the elderly. Prior to this, I acquired an undergraduate degree from the University of Waterloo in Geography and Environmental Management, with a Geomatics specialization.

This website contains information related to my research activity, teaching activity, and my participation in various conferences. Please feel free to get in touch with me if you are interested in my research or in future collaborations!
