Amr ElAlfy has been awarded the first Ph.D. in the School of Environment, Enterprise and Development (SEED). He successfully defended his thesis on September 16, 2020. Entitled “Redefining Strategic Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) World,” the dissertation provides a novel contribution to the applications of artificial intelligence and machine learning in sustainability by applying social media analytics tools to examine ‘how’ and ‘why’ corporations report on their CSR strategies in the SDGs era to enhance their operational legitimacy.
Amr began his Ph.D. in fall 2016 under the supervision of Olaf Weber and Sean Geobey. Before his Ph.D., he worked in business development and corporate social responsibility roles at Nestlé and 3M. Amr has published four papers from his Ph.D. work, and a fifth paper has been submitted to a journal. He plans to start a postdoctoral position in October and work towards an academic career. Congratulations, Dr. ElAlfy!
