FSU Finance Professor Speaks on Using Blockchain for Climate Change Challenges at Conference in Tunisia

Date: December 12, 2023

FAYETTEVILLE, NC – A Fayetteville State University (FSU) faculty member delivered the keynote speech at the inaugural International Conference on Innovative Technologies for Climate Change (INTCC) from Nov. 3-5 in Sousse, Tunisia. 

Dr. Ullah

Shakir Ullah, Ph.D., an associate professor of finance, presented on leveraging blockchain for climate changes to approximately 70 participants from diverse regions of the world. His engagement led to more collaborative interest and presentation opportunities, like conducting an additional workshop on the Introduction to Blockchain at the same conference.

His presentations at the INTCC led to another invitation to deliver a lecture on blockchain at Avicenne Private Business School in Tunis on Nov. 7, speaking to about 50 students and faculty. The trip amplified FSU’s global academic influence.

Ullah secured a $50,000 NC Collaboratory Grant in 2022 to enhance FSU’s research capabilities in blockchain, FinTech and cryptocurrencies. The grant is funding research and leading to presentations that promote FSU’s academic programs to a broader audience internationally.

In October, Ullah also presented on Exploring the Adopting of Cryptocurrencies in Business Transactions at the 4th National HBCU Blockchain and FinTech Conference at Morgan State University in Baltimore.
