Ali Amhaz, MSc Organisational and Social Psychology


I’m an entrepreneur and researcher from Lebanon with a focus on socioeconomic development projects in the Middle East. I’ve founded Beirut Art Salon, a social enterprise that provides talented emerging artists space to exhibit in Lebanese community spaces, and the Student Engagement Hub at the American University of Beirut, a centre with a mission of researching and empowering student organisations’ civic engagement efforts. My upcoming start-ups are in the research and virtual reality spaces, with a strong social psychology orientation. From these engagements, my talk at TEDxLSE explored the potential of popular motivational/self-help material to lead to self-alienation.
