Hello, I’m Dallas Rogers, a Senior Lecturer within the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning at The University of Sydney. My scholarship investigates the relationships between globalising urban space, discourse and technology networks, and housing poverty and wealth. You can contact me on Twitter or Email.

I publish on the follow research agenda:

  • A relational examination of housing poverty and wealth in globalising cities;
  • Foreign investment and the changing nature of Asia-Australia economic, technology and cultural relations; and
  • The intersection between democracy, private sector development and state intervention.

I’ve secured nationally competitive grants, and completed research projects for local and state government and the private and non-government sectors. I’m a regular commentator on urban and housing policy with an interest in using digital media techniques to communicate research findings to non-academic audiences. I’ve 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. I also produce a radio show and podcasts on contemporary urban issues.
