Hani Morsi is a PhD candidate working within the Power and Popular Politics and Digital Clusters of the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex, UK.  He has an MA in International Development from The American University in Cairo.

Morsi’s research focuses on the implications of emerging information and communication technologies (ICTs) on collective action and political activism in restrictive environments. More specifically, he is looking at how network-mediated communication influences the construction of knowledge and identity in a socio-political context marked by continued authoritarianism beyond an act of popular uprising.
