The thread running through all the research is the use of observation and automation to facilitate scientific discovery. A key part of this is the analysis of massive data sets (BigData) using machine learning. He was a Royal Society University Research Fellow from 1996-2001. In 2001 he joined NASA as the first distinguished Goddard fellow in earth science. He stayed at NASA till 2010 when he joined the Hanson Center for Space Science at the University of Texas at Dallas. He is also adjunct professor at Baylor University, Center for Astrophysics, Space Physics & Engineering Research, and the School of Public Health, Univeristy of North Texas Health Science Center.
David is also a Scholar of The Institute for Integrative Health and working group Co- Chair of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) Working Group on Health and founding director of the The Multi-Scale Integrated Intelligent Interactive Sensing Center (MINTS) at the University of Texas at Dallas.
