About

MES (UWat) MBA (Sharif) Ph.D. student (UWat)
My academic carrier started in mathematics, and then I moved on to business and environmental sustainability. For my masters, I explored the e-waste issue and the possibility of shifting to a circular economy in the context of small island states. In my Ph.D. research, I'm looking at a different issue that affects small island states: e.g., their susceptibility to food insecurity. My research interest lies in the nexus between sustainability management, information systems, and systems thinking, and I love to crunch numbers and incorporate statistical and data analysis.
