Lecturer in Computational Social Science
David obtained a degree in psychology at The University of Glasgow, followed by an MSc and PhD. Both his Masters and PhD were funded by the Economic and Social Research Council.
In addition to university led research, he has also completed internships in the public and private sectors, including an ESRC funded placement at The Scottish Government in 2011.
A Lecturer in the Department of Psychology at Lancaster University, he is also an Honorary Research Fellow at The University of Lincoln and holds affiliate status at The University of Glasgow.
My research interests are fairly broad however, I am particularly interested in how technology and data can reveal behaviours and thought processes that were previously invisible or confined to the laboratory.
