Biography
I am a MPhil/PhD student at the University of Exeter interested in state-society relations in the GCC states and the impact of Internet technology on those relations.
Research description
My PhD research studies the political implications of internet technology in the GCC states by examining in a multiple case study how social movements in Kuwait and Oman employ internet technology to initiate political change, contributing to the general theory that exists on the political implications of internet technology.
