PhD Candidate, Urban Research Program, Western Sydney University

I am a PhD Candidate in the School of Social Sciences and Psychology’s Urban Research Program at Western Sydney University. My research project, titled ‘“It's not a house, it's a home”: How home is understood and created among private renters in Sydney, Australia’, investigates how rental tenure impacts the meaning and making of home, and the ways in which private renters understand and create home.
