Research interests

David’s research interests lie within community psychology and contextual behavioural science as applied to resilience functioning and preparedness and recovery responses in the context of climate change and social disruptions.

This project highlights the contextual influence of climate disruptions as contributing to reactive adaptation, and the socio-ecological influence of farmer groups for strengthening climate change preparedness behaviours. 

David has a rural background with diverse experience in broad-acre crop and wool production, and as an agricultural commodity market analyst and financial counsellor, in Victoria, Australia. More recently, he has worked in Mental health recovery, Family and relationship counselling, and as a Family mental health practitioner.
