David holds a M.Sc. in forestry engineering, with a specialisation in Forest Management, from the Technical University of Madrid. After completing an internship in the European Forest Institute and getting working experience with consultant companies, David joined Forest Research as a research trainee first before going on to start his PhD in October 2013 and getting his current role in November 2016.
Based within the Sustainable Forestry and Climate Change team at Forest Research, David process and test timber samples to determine the wood properties of species that currently form a minor component of the British wood resource. The job will help to understand the performance of the species grown in Great Britain, the impact of silvicultural treatments on the timber properties and the commercial potential of the species.
