Cameron McCordic is an interdisciplinary researcher investigating the determinants and impacts of social vulnerability. The majority of his research has centered on urban food security, food systems and, more recently, on issues of food safety.

In addition to his focus on food research, Cameron has also investigated social stigmatization and the impacts of xenophobia. His research under this topic has included social stigmatization during the Rwandan Genocide and the experiences of refugee entrepreneurs in South Africa.
While at BSIA, Cameron has been attached to the 2030+ research group through his work as the data manager for the Hungry Cities Partnership. He has also worked with the Consuming Urban Poverty Project and a UNHCR-funded investigation into refugee entrepreneurship. Over the course of his research, he has had the privilege of working with research partners in Jamaica, Mexico, Ghana, Namibia, South Africa, Mozambique, Kenya, India and China.
