Technology, Policy and Data

I build systems that augment communication (PushBots), improve information findability (EldolarLive, ClearIP and currencystack) and empower average citizen (Mwazna, MorsiMeter and Zabatak).

I occasionally write books, formerly helped to shape youth policy at the Arab League and advised on technology and policy for Internews Europe. A former Chevening Scholar with MSc Public Policy and Management from Birkbeck, University of London.

Named by Forbes amongst the 30 Most Promising Young Entrepreneurs In Africa, and by Africa Youth Awards amongst the Top 100 Influential Young Africans. I’m also a former nominee for Data Journalism Award 2016 in the category of open data and a two-time winner of World Summit Youth Award.
