David is responsible for leading a number of different research programmes within the Centre. Recently this has included a large body of work aimed at understanding Scotland’s (and Glasgow’s) high levels of ‘excess’ mortality, studies of deindustrialisation and health across European regions, and other collaborative research into the nature and causes of, and solutions to, health inequalities.

Other research activities includes topics as diverse as early years environments, ethnicity and health, and the impact of government ‘austerity’ measures on mortality. 

David is a member of a number of national and local public health groups including the Scottish Public Health Observatory (ScotPHO), and jointly co-ordinates the national PHINS (Public Health Information Network for Scotland) network. He has a PhD in Public Health and is an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Glasgow.
