Amarah is an Environmental Psychologist interested in people place interactions and the best way to design places to promote well-being and happiness. She completed her Masters in Environmental Psychology at the University of Surrey in 2019 and focused on the role of the natural environment and empathy in reducing community tensions in a council estate.
As a Psychologist Amarah is motivated to create character and beauty in physical and natural spaces for urbanites. She believes beauty belongs to everyone, it is a symbol of harmony, and it’s absence is often felt like a violation. There are social and economic values to environmental beauty and, ugliness is costly for one’s well-being and happiness so should not be tolerated. She currently also works at Versiti as a researcher to promote diversity and inclusion.
