This fellowship is granted to young leaders who have the potential to contribute to the development of their countries in an academic and social way. His work focuses on the impact of ethical leadership on subordinate's change related attitudes and behaviours during turbulent organizational changes. He has a keen interest in studying the impact of perceptions and mindsets on individual's behaviour during uncertain times. Studying the influence of ethics and identity on these factors is of high interest to him.
Metwally was lucky to be taught be Professor Patrick Dawson one of The World's Leaders of The Processual Approach of Change. This was one of the major triggers  to-sub-specialize in  that area during his PhD Thesis. Metwally has a keen interest in focusing on the impact of human's mindset and perceptions on their brain functioning in the after math of defending his PhD. This will help him contribute to a research stream that studies the antecedents of Ethical Leadership which would help academics better understand its impact on subordinate's behaviour. Metwally has also a keen interest in studying the impact of team leadership and behaviour on the efficiency, effectiveness, speed and reliability of military operations and forensic medicine work operations in the context of process re-engineering and organizational change.
