Ahmed  is an Information System (IS) researcher whose research interest largely emerged from his personal experience that includes ICT adoption in public sector, e-government and ICT in developing countries. Ahmed had a versatile and challenging experience before his transition to academia. He served in the defence force and held important positions in the IT sector. Ahmed’s past experience is invaluable for research in understanding and providing rich insight of the context in least developed courtiers. His PhD research gained an in-depth understanding of impediments to eGovernment adoption in LDCs, which led to a process model for successful ICT adoption in public sectors within a LDC environment. Part of Ahmed’s research has been successfully implemented as an applied international research project through a competitive AusAID grant, which also received prestigious Vice Chancellor’s award for Community outreach in 2010. Ahmed is actively involved in number of research projects and has published and presented his research in distinguished forums around the world.
