Biography

Dallas Rogers is a Lecturer in urban studies within the School of Social Sciences and Psychology. His research focuses on a relational examination of housing poverty and wealth in globalising cities. He has undertaken a critical analysis of Australian urbanism through fine-grained empirical research with low-income urban citizenries as well as super-rich transnational property investors and their agents. His projects investigate the relationships between globalising urban space, infrastructure, and poverty and wealth.

Dallas has secured nationally competitive grants, and completed research projects for local and state government and the private and non-government sectors. He is a regular commentator on urban and housing policy with an interest in using digital media techniques to communicate research findings to non-academic audiences. He has appeared in domestic and international media, participated in a parliamentary briefing, is regularly invited to speak at academic and professional forums and publishes on urban and housing issues in academic and industry journals. Dallas has produced podcasts on contemporary urban issues for The Conversation and he is the online editor for The International Sociological Association (ISA) Research Committee 43 for Housing and the Built Environment, RC43.
