Charlie Gillon is a Research Associate at the City Futures Research Centre. He is a trained human geographer with an empirical focus on housing and urban studies. Much of his research to date focuses on interrogating housing challenges in Australian cities, approaching housing and home via cultural, emotional and material geographies. He was awarded his PhD in human geography from the University of Wollongong in 2018, 'Houses built on sand: Rethinking cultures of homemaking, nature and finance in a coastal master-planned estate', which examined conflicting ideals of owner-occupation through a case study of a new housing development in coastal Sydney.
