Ahmed's research interests include land use and transportation planning, transit operations and planning, travel behavior analysis concentrating on the use of motorized and non-motorized modes of transportation, and measurements of accessibility and mobility in urban contexts. Ahmed has a special interest in measuring and understanding the transportation needs of the disadvantaged populations.

He received B.S. and M.S. degrees from the Department of Architectural Engineering at the University of Alexandria, Egypt, and continued his academic work at Portland State University, where he received a Graduate GIS Certificate and earned a Ph.D. in Urban Studies for his dissertation titled "The use of advanced information technology in urban public transportation systems: An evaluation of bus stop consolidation policy." After finishing his PhD in 2005 he moved to the Twin Cities to work as a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Minnesota with David Levinson and Kevin Krizek. In August 2007 Ahmed moved to Montreal, Canada to start his current position as an assistant professor at the School of Urban Planning, McGill University.
