Chris received the prestigious award for his thesis, Essays Connecting Australian Dwelling Price Growth and Subjective Wellbeing to Within-City Income and Wealth Differentials, which was conferred in 2021.

Chris’s thesis is made up of three independent research essays that address knowledge gaps in the Australian literature surrounding the response of housing prices and individual wellbeing to residential segregation within Australian cities.

Congratulations Chris on this exciting achievement!
