Overview

Cameron’s primary area of research is homelessness, supportive housing and broader social welfare programs aimed at addressing social disadvantage. He is a Research Fellow funded through an Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA). Cameron is the Associate Editor of the Australian Journal of Social Issues, and with Associate Professor Lynda Cheshire, is leading the UQ Network for Housing and Urban Studies. He is the co-chief investigator on several national studies that examine the nature and outcomes of newly emerging models of intervention directed toward permanently ending homelessness.

Cameron has written about identity, the meaning of home, the international transfer of homelessness/housing policy, and housing as a means to foster autonomy and self-determination. He is currently examining different models and practices of social service delivery. Cameron's research seeks to build an evidence base about the interacting societal, social policy, social program and agency dimensions to human change. Cameron is particularly interested in conducting ethnographic research, with a focus on policy and practice translation.
