Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. David has a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy, and a Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy in Movement Science. His current research focus is on the therapeutic effects of deep brain stimulation surgery and the neurophysiological mechanisms that underlie these effects in persons with Parkinson’s disease. He enjoys coaching his son’s elementary school Lego robotics team where he is often humbled by the lateral thinking of young and creative minds.
