Huê-Tâm Jamme studies urbanisms in transition from a comparative perspective. Using a range of qualitative and quantitative methods, she focuses on the lived experience of societal transformations. Her research explores in particular whether the development of information and communication networks shapes inclusive urban spaces. Jamme currently leads a research project centered on the gig economy and women’s upward mobility and in the capitals of Cambodia, Myanmar, and Thailand. In previous research, she investigated the socio-spatial consequences of the transition towards auto-mobility in Vietnam. Her research interests further include public space, street vending, affordable housing and transit-oriented development (TOD), and active travel, both in cities of the Global South and in the United States. Her work has been published in English and in French in edited volumes and academic journals, including Transportation Research, the Journal of Planning Education and Research, and the Journal of Environmental Psychology. Her research and teaching draw on several years of professional practice in Asia as a consultant in urban development.
