Research Assistant, Interdisciplinary Global Development Centre (IGDC)
Matt is a PhD Student conducting his research in the Department of Politics at the University of York. His research is focusing on taxation and its historic role within theoretical development at a global level. The research will then focus regionally and will offer an empirical view of Latin America and Argentina. Outside of taxation, Matt’s research interests include exploring the asymmetries within development frameworks related to the Latin American period of post-neoliberal governance. He is interested in critically developing our understanding of the tenets associated with mainstream development discourses. He holds a Master’s in Business and his interest for Latin America is derived from experience working in the region.
Matt is a temporary Research Assistant within the Interdisciplinary Global Development Centre. He is working on the ESRC funded project related to Integrating secondary quantitative and qualitative datasets for development. For this project he is focusing on Health Governance in Malawi.
