I grew up in the green Tunisia in the beautiful Medina of Tunis. At the age of 22, I was awarded a B.B.A degree specializing in Finance from the Institut des Hautes Etudes Commerciales at Carthage (Tunisia). Then, I was awarded a scholarship to Canada as part of the CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency) scholarship exchange program between Canada and Tunisia. I pursued my studies with an Master of Science specializing in Finance as well at Laval University (Quebec City, Canada). After completing my M.Sc. thesis under the supervision of Prof. Jean-Marc Martel , I decided to join in the efficiency analysis project that was just agreed upon between Prof. Wade D. Cook and CIBC. Currently, I am in my third year in the Ph.D. program in Administrative Studies at the Schulich School of Business at York University. My area of specialization is Management Science and my supervisor is Prof. Cook. My current reserach involves efficiency analysis in the banking industry with a particular attention to the retail side of the bank branches activity.
I have just succeeded in my Ph.D. program and I am looking forward to finish my thesis I order to finally quit university and earn big bucks.
However, if you want to have a close-up on my résumé, just go ahead.
I am currently working on three ongoing projects:
- Choosing factors (inputs and outputs) in DEA, what is the best technique to apply?
- Techniques for breaking the tie in the efficient set, that is how to rank efficient units, as all of them display an efficiency score of 100%
- Evaluating the efficiency of units performing more than one activity and in the particular setting where some resources are shared among these activities. We apply our approach to bank branches as we denote today a stronger emphasis on the sales part of a branch's activity. If you work by chance on any of these topics, a reciprocal exchange of ideas is more than welcome.
