David is curious by nature and has a passion for learning, which probably explains the fact he has two undergraduate bachelor degrees (one in Physics and the other in Biomedical Engineering) and a PhD in Rehabilitation Engineering.


He has extensive experience as a Rehabilitation Engineer in the field of disability, rehabilitation engineering and assistive technologies, and is currently a Senior Lecturer and academic staff member within the College of Science and Engineering and a researcher within the Medical Device Research Institute at Flinders University.


David’s passion in life and reason for waking up is to maximise the impact and accessibility of assistive technologies to improve the lives of people with a disability. He holds a patent for his PhD work, has twice won first prize in the College of Biomedical Engineers’ Better Technology Awards for novel assistive technologies, is an invited TEDx speaker, and has delivered numerous invited and keynote presentations.
