David studies the destruction of cultural heritage in war zones, a research interest that has exposed him to a range of fields in the humanities and social sciences. As an archaeology major at Brown University, David specialized in ancient Mesopotamia but shifted his focus to policy and conflict analysis when ISIS began destroying the cultural heritage he had been studying. David received a Marshall Scholarship to research the effects of cultural heritage destruction on local communities in war zones, during which time he received master’s degrees from the University of Cambridge and University College London in architecture and urban studies and international public policy.
David enjoys helping others improve their writing skills, especially in the fields of political science, anthropology, archaeology, art history, and English. He has deep experience conducting research in both the humanities and social sciences, and he can help students navigate seemingly daunting research projects.
In his free time, David likes to hike, read, go to museums, and learn languages. His fun fact is that he used to luge as a kid.
