David is a DPhil candidate in the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford. His research involves developing and using novel coherent X-ray techniques to probe defects in nanocrystals, with the aim of creating a better understanding between crystalline structure and material performance.
Prior to joining the Hofmann Group in October 2018, David received his M.S. in Materials Science and Engineering (2018) and B.S. in Chemical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering (2017) at the University of California, Berkeley. He also acquired internship experience in technology, manufacturing and public health sectors.
