adam hamdan / آدم حمدان

Hi. I am an incoming MS in Quantitative Economics candidate at NYU, Stern School of Business. I also just finished my undergrad at McGill University, where I studied in the Honours in Economics program. I like applied microeconomic theory, economic networks and econometrics.

In Winter 2022, I worked as a part-time Research Assistant to Prof. Hassan Benchekroun at McGill University, focusing on the private provision of public goods, in the context of charitable fundraising. At the same time, I wrote a literature review on dynamic network formation under the supervision of Prof. Leonie Baumann.

Before that, I worked at The Decision Lab, a behavioural-science think tank and consulting firm. As a summer associate, I contributed to a consulting project whose purpose was to reduce alcohol abuse in South Africa through behavioural nudges.

Outside of work, I spend most of my time playing the classical guitar, listening to jazz, sketching trees and hiking with my partner, Rasha.
