Hany joined Swansea University in 2011 as a PhD candidate. His PhD thesis investigates the transmission channels of financial crises into real economies in developing countries. The main focus in this piece of research is on labour market outcomes, namely unemployment, the informal sector shock dynamics and child labour. He took his MSc in International Business Economics at City University London. In addition, he obtained his first degree and Postgraduate Diploma in Economics from Mansoura University, Egypt.

Hany is also the founder and president of the “Egypt Scholars Economic Society”, where he leads a group of young economists who are based in Europe, Africa and USA, with the aim of stimulating rigorous research on the Egyptian economy.

His teaching experience in Economics goes back to 2003 in Mansoura University, where he worked as a tutor of Economics. In the meantime, he was a member of the founding team of the “Quality Assurance and Performance Evaluating Unit” in the same university. Throughout his career, Hany has taken part in teaching the “Chartered Financial Analyst” CFA programme at the Institute of Professional Accountants in Cairo, where he acted as a lecturer and vice-technical manager.

His research interest is in Applied Economics, especially in the areas of Macroeconomics, Development, Financial and labour Economics. In particular, Hany’s main interest is on modelling external shocks and their transmission mechanisms. He has a strong background in Econometrics, especially in dynamic panel data, limited dependent variable, and vector autoregressive models.

In addition to the above, Hany has done some research on how democratic transition process in Arab countries may affect their economic growth status. His main research focus is on how democratization may proceed differently in the Arab world than it has in other regions, due to political cultures, in particular the role of Islam in politics and the important role of oil in some of the region’s economies.
