Ahmed Osama has recently received his PhD in Transportation Engineering from the University of British Columbia (UBC). He had been a research assistant at the Bureau of Intelligent Transportation Systems and Freight Security at UBC for the last four years.

He had participated in several traffic safety projects for cities within Canada (Vancouver, Edmonton, and Surrey) and abroad (Doha and Adelaide); and authored/co-authored more than 15 publications. His work gained him several awards from Canadian Institute of Transportation Engineers, UBC, Canadian Transportation Research Forum, and Transport Canada.

Prior to studies at UBC, Ahmed Osama completed his MSc in public transportation at Ain Shams University while pursuing practical experience as a transportation engineer in the world-renowned Dar Al-Handasah consultants.
