About me

Hi there! I am Adham, a PhD student at The Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA)) at UCL and a former The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) employee.

I did my master’s studies at the University of Warwick, in Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies (CIM) in urban analytics and visualization. In my thesis, I explored how quantifying urban forms can serve as a proxy for social and economic class, employing quantitative methods alongside spatial analysis.

Now, I am researching urban mobility modeling and how to make it transferable across cities, using emerging mobile datasets and transfer machine learning techniques. Under the project Redefining Variability: EvALuating Land Use and TRansport Impacts on Urban Mobility Patterns (realTRIPS).

I used to build software for humanitarian aid, and now I am doing it for understanding cities and making them better. I am interested in democratizing urban studies by employing transferable urban quantitative methods.

Sometimes, I provide consultations to help organizations modernize their software by building automation tools to upgrade their legacy architecture and code.
