Before joining the Portsmouth Business School, I worked at the Centre for Research in Regional Planning and Development, University Laval (Québec, QC, Canada), the University of Paris-Dauphine (Paris, France), the High School of Economic and Commercial Sciences (University of Tunis, Tunisia), the Institute of Higher Commercial Studies (University of Carthage, Tunisia), and Regional Institute in Computer Sciences and Telecommunications (Tunis, Tunisia). I also worked as an analyst and developer in computer science with IF and COFAT companies (Tunis, Tunisia).


I am a member of the International Cartographic Association (ICA) commission on geospatial analysis and modelling.
