Professional biography

David received an Honours Degree in Physics (MPhys) from Oxford University, UK, in 2006.  Following his Masters, he received his PhD in the impact of detection physics in X-ray CCD imagers and spectrometers from the Open University in 2010.  Appointed as an e2v Research Fellow in 2010 and a Lecturer in Physical Sciences in 2017, he has continued his research with the Centre for Electronic Imaging into radiation damage in CCDs and defects in silicon, with specific work towards the ESA Gaia, Euclid and Athena missions, the ESA and Chinese Acadamy of Science SMILE mission, NASA's WFIRST mission, instrument background and graded-Z shielding, p-channel device technology and the fundamental physics of radiation damage in silicon and how this impacts the lattice.  His research also focusses on the use of device-based simulations, including the modelling of CCDs and novel imaging techniques, alongside the simulation of instrument background, from XMM-Newton to ATHENA.  David has developed collaborations with the Swiss Light Source at the Paul Scherrer Institute (Switzerland) and the Diamond Light Source (UK) towards the development of applications for the Electron-Multiplying CCD in synchrotron-based research and medical imaging, developing other applications for technology and techniques orignally designed for space science.

A list of publications in print can be found on the Publications tab, which provides links to downloadable copies of all papers.  Further information and bibliometrics are available through David's Google Scholar Profile.

Research interests

Instrumentation development and study of the underlying physical processes for detectors in space science and synchrotron research:

  • Radiation damage in silicon-based devices; the causes, the consequences and methods for removing and reducing the impact (experiment and modelling).
  • Inter-disciplinary approaches to advancing understanding of traps and defects, leading inter-disciplinary research into first-principle simulations of, and methods to reduce, defects in silicon.
  • Instrument background in silicon devices for space-science missions (simulation and measurement).
  • Semiconductor device technology (n-channel and p-channel CCD, EM-CCD, SCD and CMOS).
  • Soft X-ray detectors, detection techniques and data analysis algorithms.
  • Hard X-ray detectors, detection using scintillators or direct detection and novel data analysis methods.
  • X-ray detectors and detection techniques for synchrotron research (RIXS, X-ray crystallography).
  • Novel imaging detectors and techniques, scale-space techniques for X-ray data.

Teaching interests

Over the past few years David has developed his experience in teaching at the Open University across a variety of areas.  He has taken on the role as a "topic specialist" in a range of areas of the Open University "Practical Science" course in Physics and Astronomy, from NMR to Probing the Electron.  He has also written course materials for the final project in the course, developing a project for students revolving around mathematical modelling through teamwork in distance learning.

David is now working as part of the team developing the OU's new Space Science Masters course, combining his research experience working on Gaia and teaching experience on the Practical Science and Research Skills Masters courses.

Current teaching:

02/17-present: SMT359: "Electromagnetism" at the Open University.

10/13-present: SXP288 “Practical Science: Physics and Astronomy” at the Open University.

10/15-present: S818 "Masters in Space Science and Technology" at the Open University.

Previous teaching:

10/13-09/15: S825 “Developing Research Skills in Science” at the Open University.

07/12-10/12:  Tutor, SMXR359 Electromagnetism with the Open University.

09/07-04/08:  Java programming at Brunel University.

Impact and engagement

As a member of the Centre for Electronic Imaging (CEI), David often collaborates with e2v technologies.  This collaboration between academia and industry ensures that the research undertaken has real and tangible impact to UK industry.  The collaboration agreements in place between e2v and the Open University enable a much more in-depth study of the device physics than would otherwise be possible, bringing great benefits to space science and synchrotron applications.

David ran a very successful outreach project on the UKube-1 mission under funding from STFC's Science in Society scheme, reaching over 1200 local school pupils in the first year of operation.  The equipment and materials developed in this project are still being used in outreach activities in local schools, colleges and amateur interest groups, as well as for external visitors to the CEI laboratories.

External collaborations

David is working across a variety of projects in many collaborations in academia across the UK and Europe (e.g. MSSL, Durham, IoA Cambridge, ONERA, PSI), with industry (e.g. e2v, XCAM) and with the space agencies (e.g. ESA, UKSA).  Alongside these European collaborations, David is also working with collaborators in the US such as those at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
