Alongside her role at the GSI, Ami is finishing-up her PhD in Human Geography at the University of Manchester. Ami’s PhD focuses on the governance of place-based decarbonisation visions, drawing upon a case study of Greater Manchester. Her research adopts a relational framing to help unpack the politics, power dynamics and justice implications of place-based decarbonisation ambitions.

Ami is particularly interested in place and scale, drawing upon these concepts – and the interconnections between them – within her research.
