Introduction

Hello!

With over 10 years of multidisciplinary working experience in the government and non-government sectors in addition to the research field, My key passion is to cultivate government innovation with focus on technology as a key enabler.

 

In the past few years, I was privileged to work as a strategist for the eGovernment in Dubai/UAE where I have has successfully initiated or led many distinguished initiatives in such as launching of the first open data portal in the region and developing the social media policy guidelines for UAE government. Also, I was the mastermind of the plan resulted in positioning the UAE in the 6th rank on the UN eGovernment Index 2012 for eParticipation and recognizing it by the UN as an Emerging Global Leader.

 

In 2013, I've founded  Exantium - a UAE-based government advisory firm focusing on government transformation and innovation through technology in the Arab region. Exantium’s core services include mGovernment strategy and policy design, technology policy implementation, social media, data modeling & analytic, risk assessments and partnership development with the business community.

Back in 2009, I was awarded a scholarship from the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation for a Master’s degree in Public Administration (MPA) from Mohammed Bin Rashid School of Government (MBRSG) where I've graduated with the Top Student Award.  

In addition, I'm an active researcher and has published a number of papers on various topics. I participates frequently as a speaker in different conferences and events in the region and globally.
