After completing his PhD in 2005 David worked in the Health Department of Western Australia and the Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning at the University of Western Australia. David was awarded a 3-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Basel, Switzerland in 2006. In 2008 David returned to Western Australia and was employed as a Research Fellow in the School of Psychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Western Australia before joining Edith Cowan University in 2010.
David's current research focuses on the influence the childhood environment has on subsequent growth, development and reproduction; early-life risk factors for teenage pregnancy; the role of the placenta in fetal growth; and the influence grandparents have in the lives of grandchildren.
