Starting his research career as crustacean ecologist at the Tasmanian Aquaculture and Fisheries Institute, in 2006 David took a leap into the world of fisheries and development. Based at WorldFish Center headquarters in Penang, Malaysia from 2006 until early 2011, he worked on diverse projects relating to fisheries information systems, governance, fisheries and food security, and aquaculture development. He has worked on projects in Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines, Senegal, Nigeria, Ghana and Solomon Islands. David is a visiting scholar at the Centre, and has a degree in Marine, Freshwater and Antarctic Biology (1988 – 1992) and a PhD in fisheries ecology (2001-2005) from the University of Tasmania.
