David Webber's expertise lies in existential threat, the psychology of terrorism and radicalization and deraticalization. He uses a mixture of social psychological experimental methods, field surveys in at-risk locations and qualitative analyses to examine the factors involved in the radicalization and deradicalization processes of violent extremists.
Webber also has a background in existential experimental psychology and has worked to understand how individuals react to existentially threatening circumstances. In conjunction with the U.S. State Department and the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism, Webber is consulting with the Philippine prison system on the use and implementation of risk assessment tools for imprisoned violent extremist offenders.
