Current Research

Ally is a human geographer with a background in energy geographies. She has undertaken research across the energy sphere including recent work on the role of invisible energy policy in Higher Education Institutions (HEI's) and is a part of the Supergen Energy Storage Network +. Additionally, much of Ally's emerging research involves exploring the relationship between social and earth processes with a specific focus on the underground. This often has an energy theme but not exclusively so and recent work has involved exploring the conceptualization of subsurface governance. This profile of research has in part been developed through an ongoing collaboration with the British Geological Survey (BGS) and takes a critical perspective exploring societal interactions with the subsurface.
