Experience

David graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2013 with a First Class Masters Degree (MEng) in Electronic and Electrical Engineering and was awarded the Lamb Master of Engineering Prize as the highest achieving MEng student in the final two years of study. During his time on the undergraduate course, he completed a 6-month placement at CERN, where he successfully designed a module which is responsible for monitoring the temperature of various electronic components on the large hadron collider.

From 2013-2017, David pursued a PhD in III-V compound semiconductor MOS technology, also at the University of Glasgow. During this time, he developed a world leading III-V junctionless MOSFET and presented his work at 4 international conferences.

Following his PhD, David was employed as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant working on antimonide MOSFETs as part of the INSIGHT collaboration: an EU funded project with partners from both academia and industry and a total budget of €4.25 million.
