Hassan works in the Strategy Unit, helping Nesta design, deliver and adjust its strategy over the next 10 years.

Before joining Nesta, Hassan worked as a public sector consultant supporting central and local government departments to grapple with some of their most difficult challenges - from housing strategies for London boroughs to crisis response at the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. He takes an impact-led approach to problem solving, passionate about the potential of the public and third sectors to make a real difference to people's lives.

Hassan started his career as an English teacher at a secondary school in North London, and holds a BA in History from the University of Warwick. 

Outside of work, he is a keen tennis player and big fan of live music.
