Mona Hamdy is a Harvard University PhD candidate and teaching fellow of Applied Ethics researching common morality in the data-soaked, sentient-machine age.

In 2009, Hamdy co-founded the Saudi-based Al Baydha Development Corporation with Her Royal Highness Princess Haifa Al Faisal. A believer in the power of technology to improve the lives of the globally disadvantaged, Hamdy is working with Microsoft Research and Glen Weyl on modeling radically extended market exchange for future social growth and is the MENA region goodwill ambassador for Sir Richard Branson's Global Blockchain Business Council.
She currently sits on the Bretton Woods Committee, the World Bank SDG1 Special Council, Center for Democracy and Technology and the UN Global Council on Poverty Eradication.
