Researcher

Professor Bill Randolph

In my role as the Director of the City Futures Research Centre, I help plan strategy as well as undertake original research on housing and planning policy in the academic, commercial, community and government sectors.
 
As a researcher of 40 years standing, I’ve always been motivated by issues around equity, social justice and undertaking practical research in the public interest. This aligns perfectly with the Centre’s key mission: to contribute to the academic debate on urban challenges while building the evidence base for policy change. In supporting UNSW Built Environment’s research aims we have been very successful; our work has fed into legislative change in NSW and major policy development at the Federal level.
 
A passion of mine, and a focus of the Centre, is equipping the next generation of researchers to face the urban challenges of tomorrow by providing opportunities for Early Career Researchers and supervision of PhD students in the fields of housing, urban renewal, city data and analytics, urban wellbeing, and metropolitan planning policy issues.
