Profile Summary

David is a Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Salford. He completed a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology at the University of Manchester (2000) and an MA in Conflict, Security and Development at King’s College London (2007). He then moved to La Paz, Bolivia, before returning to the UK to complete his PhD in International Conflict Analysis at the University of Kent (2012). During his PhD, David co-founded the Latin American Research Cluster at Kent.

David’s research focuses on the links between economic development and political violence. More specifically, he has hitherto researched the links between neo-liberalism, globalisation and violent conflict. David has a particular interest in analysing the links between civil war and economic processes of globalisation, including international trade and foreign direct investment. He has also analysed the political economy of US foreign policy and developed research within the field of critical terrorism studies.
