Biography David's research is focused at the interface between fluvial geomorphology and freshwater ecology.

It aims to tackle issues related to the effects of changing flow and sediment supply regimes upon river habitat quality, in response to climate change and human activities.

David has a particular interest in the application of new technologies to address river science problems.

His work using terrestrial LiDAR demonstrates how the technology can be used to provide improved assessments of bed roughness and grain-size at the reach-scale, assess rapid morphological change in dynamic proglacial rivers, and map river habitat.
