Achievements

David undertook his PhD and an Australian Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Tasmania in the 1990s. During this time his achievements included a British Council Postgraduate Bursary to Cardiff University, a CSIRO Institute of Industrial Technologies Significant Research Award and an Australian Society of Microbiology Research Fellowship to the University of London. In recent years David was awarded the Institute of Public Administration Australia (Tasmanian Branch) 2011 Prize for Achievement in Public Policy and has been appointed as a National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) Australia, Technical Assessor in the Field of Chemical Testing. David is also an Honorary Research Associate in the School of Chemistry at the University. He has published over 50 international publications and numerous national and international conference presentations.

General Responsibilities

David joined the CSL in 2013 as a Research Fellow in the field of Organic Mass Spectrometry. Prior to this he held appointments as a Research Fellow at the University of Tasmania from 1997 to 2001 and Leader, Microbial Biotechnology Sub-Program, Cooperative Research Centre for Antarctic and Southern Ocean Studies until 2003. Immediately prior to joining the CSL David spent eight years outside the academic sector, gaining valuable industry experience as the Section Head of Organic Chemistry within Tasmania's Environmental Protection Agency Division. His research interests currently include analytical applications of mass spectrometry and chromatography in the life and environmental sciences, with current areas including pharmacology, plant science, food science, microbiology, medicine, zoology and environmental contaminants / pollutants.

A pilot study to test an asbestos risk ratings tool adapted from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) UK and assessment of alternative (2014 - 2015)$30,025
Description
The project will undertake a literature review to identify the relevant assessment criteria that are required in an assessment tool to be used by workplace building inspectors when they inspect asbestos in different workplaces. It will conduct an evaluation of up to five assessment tools when used in the workplace and develop recommendations for national tool adoption.
