Portrait of Visiting Fellow, Cameron Duff

Cameron Duff

Cameron Duff is an Associate Professor at the Centre for People, Organisation and Work in the College of Business and Law at RMIT University in Melbourne. Cameron’s major areas of research interest explore the role of social innovation in driving social change in the community and not-for-profit sectors, with a focus on mental health care, substance use treatment and social housing. He is particularly interested in organisational strategies including the role of workforce development and program design and leadership in the delivery of innovative health and social programs. Cameron regularly collaborates with national and international research partners, and he publishes the results of this research in the top international journals in organisational studies, health and social care, sociology, geography and planning, public health and medical anthropology.

Current funded projects

Cameron Duff is currently leading a large multi-site, multi-year study funded by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) Inquiry Program exploring pathways out of institutional settings for individuals with a history of housing insecurity. Working with colleagues at the University of New South Wales, Curtin University and the University of Tasmania, the program involves three linked projects; one exploring experiences of people leaving residential treatment for mental health conditions; another exploring experiences exiting custodial settings; and a third project exploring transitions from out of home care. With colleagues, Cameron has also been successful in securing funding support through the Australian Research Council for a Linkage project exploring organisational responses to mental health problems in the workplace. This research commenced in June 2020, and will conclude in mid 2023.
