Current work:


Please visit my new web page:




I completed my B.Sc. in the School of Architecture and Planning at King Saud University in 1998. Thereafter, I was granted a full-time job at the same school as a teaching assistance and then was awarded a scholarship to pursue my master degree in the US. I have a Master of Urban and Regional Planning from Portland State University in the US in 2003. I have completed my PhD dissertation in Newcastle University (UK). The dissertation was about “The Role of Regional Development Policies in Fostering Local Economic Development: the case of Arriyadh region in Saudi Arabia”. It aimed at exploring the regional level of development planning as a proposed potential for raising the level of development in the localities which are less favored from the overall flourishing country.



Research Interests:

I am focusing my research interests on issues of local development involving spatial economics, governance and planning.
