BiographyDavid is an associate professor with the department of physics He has been a faculty member since 1990. David has a B.Sc. (first class honours) from Carleton, his M.Sc. is from the University of Toronto, and he graduated in 1982 with a Ph.D. from the University of Guelph. David's Ph.D. research was with the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance group at Guelph and this continues to be his area of research.
