Hi! I'm David.

I am a third year Ph.D. student at MIT studying Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics with Jesse Kroll. As a fellow of the Tata Center for Technology and Design, I develop quantitative low-cost sensors for air quality research. We use distributed networks of these sensors to better understand changes in urban atmospheric chemistry with the hope that this knowledge will inform the public and lead to improvements in public policy and air quality.

Before arriving at MIT, I studied Chemical Physics at Hendrix College and Chemical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. My non-academic interests include: entreprenuership, development economics, open-source software, running, coffee, and baseball (Go Giants!).
