Hani Morsi is the founder of the American University in Cairo's chapter of Students for Free Culture. He is currently working on an MA in Economics in International Development. Hani's current research and activism interests are in the realm of open technology and knowledge, social media and technology-driven development projects.

When he is not traveling for work or fun, or scrambling to finish a 50-page research paper due in 4 hours, Hani enjoys reading voraciously, planning a round-the-world trip he currently doesn’t have the time or money for, and tinkering with stuff.
