David incorporated to the National University of Ireland Galway in 2017 to work in the Woodprops programme. David holds a M.Sc. in forestry engineering, with a specialisation in Forest Management, from the Technical University of Madrid.

David's thesis "Potential of noble fir, Norway spruce, western red cedar and western hemlock grown for timber production in Great Britain" investigated the wood properties and merchantability of the four species in different growing regions in Great Britain. The thesis concluded that the four species have the potential to diversity the timber supply in Great Britain.
