Dr. Mezzour analyzed Youtube data and press data to assess the effect of different governmental and non-governmental interventions on vulnerable populations including women, youth, migrants and homeless. Such work provided key insights into the socio-economic impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable populations in Morocco and informed our understanding of the evolving policy needs in response to the crisis.
Dr. Mezzour is highly professional, delivers quality products and on time. She has a strong technical expertise and an in-depth understanding of datamining opportunities and challenges in Morocco. She has very good communication skills and an analytical mind, and is keen on engaging in multi-disciplinary discussions in order to apply AI tools and techniques to respond to the needs of other disciplines.
I strongly recommend Dr. Mezzour. I believe she is a solid expert on using data science and artificial intelligence techniques to understand local socio-economic dynamics in Morocco.
