Congratulations to centre researchers Megan Moskos, Linda Isherwood, and Emma Baker for the publication of their AHURI Final Report 'What works' to sustain Indigenous tenancies in Australia, written in collaboration with Professor Michael Dockery and Dr Ngoc Thien Anh Pham.
New research by ACHR director Emma Baker and friends Dr. David Oswald and Dr. Trivess Moore exploring the well-being of renters during the COVID-19 pandemic has been published open-access in International Journal of Housing Policy. Read the full article here.
Our ARC-funded project on Australian Rental Housing Conditions has been featured on the University of Adelaide Research and Innovation news page.
The ACHR team will join Professor Andrew Beer (UniSA) on the AHURI Inquiry into population growth in Australia's smaller cities. The project will investigate what policies and programs are needed to grow Australia’s second-tier cities.
Starting 2022 with some brilliant news, our researchers (led by Professor Emma Baker) have been awarded an ARC Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities (LIEF) grant for their project "The Australian Rental Monitor: A Data Infrastructure". Funded until December 2024, the project will provide researchers and policy stakeholders with the essential data infrastructure on Australia’s rental housing conditions that they urgently require - a publicly accessible multi year data resource to monitor housing quality, conditions, and population in the Australian rental sector.
The Centre is pleased to welcome Dr. Amy Clair, who joins us as a Postdoctoral Fellow from the University of Essex. Amy will be working on the NHMRC Healthy Housing Capturing Complexity scheme during her time with us. Amy has a PhD in Social Policy, and works on housing, health, and child well-being. Amy is an amazing addition to our team here at the ACHR, and we're excited to have her with us (albeit virtually for now).
Centre Director Emma Baker was featured on the 7.30 Report on Monday night as part of Alan Kohler's special investigation into housing affordability in Australia. Both the broadcast and accompanying article are available to watch and read via the ABC.
Join us on Zoom at 10.30am (ACDT) on Monday 18 October to hear ACHR members Professor Rebecca Bentley and Professor Emma Baker talk about the ways the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence for Healthy Housing is undertaking research to drive the national agenda around healthy housing.
