Kon works for the City of Ottawa, Employment and Social Services for the last Fifteen years. In 2013, I have joined the University of Ottawa, Faculty of Social Sciences as a part time Professor at the Schools of Political Studies, the School of Sociological and Anthropological Studies and the department of geography. Courses taught include the Sociology of Work and Organization, Immigration Policies and Multiculturalism in Canada and Quebec, Comparative politics: Identity issues and Social Geography. 

Internationally, I have worked as a Research Consultant for The Royal Tropical Institute (KIT), Amsterdam, in South Sudan Health Action and Research Plan Project (SHARP). The SHARP project aims to increase the overall quality and accessibility of reproductive health services by empowering South Sudan’s Ministry of Health to manage and deliver quality services. 

My involvement in SHARP research project and subsequent visits to Africa has open new avenue to develop programs for street kids and their families in war affected nation of South Sudan. Nonetheless, I have continued to build literature in health, poverty, social inequality and politics of identity in South Sudan to find a better construction for institutional reform and peaceful coexistence in a multiethnic society. 

Conferred a Ph.D. in Social Science by Tilburg University, The Netherlands/ Taos Institute-program ; a Masters of Liberal Studies (MLS) degree from Fort Hays State University/FHSU, Kansas , USA, BA in Sociology from Alexandria University, Egypt, Social Services Diploma from Algonquin College and Certificate in University Teaching from the University of Ottawa.

Research work and interest centered on immigration, employment, ethnicity, health and socio-cultural issues, and the interplay between them as they affect the course and pace of social relations and human well-being. These include global and local issues of cultural and ethnic diversity, construction of groups or individuals identity, communities and its influences on health and human well-being.
