David's research explores the ethical issues raised by robotic technology and artificial intelligence. His work applies theories of moral philosophy and distributive justice to examine how new technologies challenge our existing moral and political commitments. He has published papers in peer-reviewed academic journals on AI ethics, Internet research ethics, Internet harassment, network regulation, free software, and intellectual property rights.

Before joining CSIRO, David spent two years in the Netherlands as an ethics advisor for computing researchers at the University of Twente. He was awarded a PhD in philosophy by the University of Queensland in 2011 for a research thesis in computer ethics.
