Outside of Nous

Abdel began his career in research, holding a research position in a neurophysiology lab at Toronto Western Hospital while assisting a team that studied Near and Middle Eastern civilizations at the University of Toronto.

He transitioned into consulting by joining Lough Barnes Consulting Group, a boutique consulting firm based in Toronto that operates in healthcare and the broader public sector.
