Profile

Dr Athina Karatzogianni holds a PhD in Politics from Nottingham, an MA in International Conflict Analysis from Kent, and a BA in International Relations with Politics from Lancaster. Athina is one of the earliest UK researchers on digital developments and their impact on media, politics and society and has carved a niche within the areas of new media theory and global politics, for the study of cyber conflict and the use of digital technologies by social movements, protest, and insurgency groups (including the Iraq war protests, Chinese cyber-dissidents, WikiLeaks, and the social media enabled uprisings in the Middle East).
