Rupa Ganguli is an economic geographer, who has used quantitative and qualitative research methods to study the dynamics and drivers of Australian commercial and residential property markets. She has extensive research and consulting work experience in the property development and real estate agency industry, employed within major publicly listed companies.

She joined the City Futures team in 2022 to work on an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Project, ‘The precarious city: the suburban settlement in an age of uncertainty’. It will investigate the longer-term implications of changing housing and employment relations among young Australians, disrupting the post-war suburban home ownership model.

Rupa holds a Bachelor of Science (Economic Geography, Hons I) and a Master of Science (Environmental Planning) degree. In early 2022, Rupa submitted her PhD titled ‘Chameleons in the city: An institutional analysis of sales agents in Sydney’s new apartment market’. The thesis uncovers the complexity of agent roles and relationships with other development actors in apartment production in an urban context, comparable with other globally connected cities.
