I am an experimental physicist, focused on applications of diffuse optical spectroscopies and imaging to human diseases.  My work has involved instrument design, construction, and control, and advanced data analysis techniques.

Most of my past projects involved detection and staging of breast cancer with multi-modal imaging (esp. MRI); my current work focuses on brain injury during ischemic stroke and ECMO therapy.  I am involved in projects applying diffuse optics to a variety of other conditions, including muscle disease and brain function.


David holds a PhD in Physics awarded from University of Pennsylvania (2011).
