Amay is a Research Fellow with the Research Centre at APU. Upon finishing his Master’s in Economics in 2016 from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada, Amay joined the Centre to pursue his research interests within Macroeconomics. He is particularly interested in political economy, finance, labour and inequality, and the intersections between them.
