David’s principal research concentrates on the contemporary societies of the Caribbean and Latin America, with a specific focus on urban geography and social sustainability.

Recent research projects have concentrated on the urban environment, development and social change in the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and Barbuda. David is a University Lecturer in Sustainable Urban Development and Director of Research at the Department of Continuing Education, University of Oxford, and Fellow of Kellogg College, Oxford. He directs the MSc in Sustainable Urban Development at the Continuing Professional Development Centre, and is a member of the Management Committee of the Latin American Centre.
