David is a Visiting Research Fellow with the department of Politics & International Studies at the University of Adelaide and is an Associate of the Indo-Pacific Governance Research Centre. David's research currently concentrates on the political economy of international trade and development with a particular focus on institutional change as a result of foreign investment in the Australian economy. His research has also focused on the political economy of ethno-national radicalisation and political violence/terrorism. He has recently published work on the effect of foreign investment - mainly connected to the recent resources boom - on Australian regulatory institutions and sub-national states
