Director of Finance
The major focus of David's role is to grease the wheels of the Youth Platform and ensure that it runs smoothly and efficiently. The organisation and direction of funds is the life-blood of any institution, which is why he aims to set up this side of the UNA-YP with the highest possible standards of transparency and probity.
David is a student at the Centre for South Asian Studies at the University of Cambridge. As a member of the External Relations Committee of CUUNA (Cambridge University United Nations Association), he has developed a keen interest in the organisation and running of international associations to complement his research focus on Empire Relations in the twentieth century.
With a childhood split between India and New Zealand, David’s interests lie in understanding the roots of trans-national interactions, which led him to work with scholars and NGOs in his native Bangalore as research assistant, and volunteer.
