David currently works as an associate lecturer within the School of Environmental Science and Management at Southern Cross University. His broad area of research interest is in the conservation and ecology of Australian frogs.

David has been actively involved in researching the spread and control of cane toads throughout the region and has established a web-based tool to allow members of the community to record toad sightings - ToadTracker.
