Khadiga Hassan is part of the Fairwork team in Egypt. She is a Research Assistant for the Access to Knowledge for Development Center (A2K4D) at the School of Business of the American University in Cairo.
Khadiga completed her undergraduate studies at Suffolk University in Boston, Massachusetts with a Bachelor of Science in Economics with honors. She moved back to Cairo and joined Access to Knowledge for Development (A2K4D) as a research assistant. She gained expertise in the digital economy from her data, AI, and future of work research. She developed an interest in data science, digital economy, platform labor, market research, econometrics, and economic theory for inclusive development. She is aiming to pursue her master’s degree in Development Economics.
For the Fairwork project, she will gather evidence about platform work conditions and gather insights from gig workers in Cairo through interviews and desk research. Khadiga will also help translate Fairwork principles into measurable thresholds.
