Growing up near Sydney, Australia, David’s interest in world history was rooted in a fascination with the classical civilisations of the ancient Mediterranean. Later, his research focus shifted to Southeast Asia for his dissertation when he joined the Greater Angkor Project, an international collaboration between the University of Sydney, the Cambodian government and l’Ecole Francais d’Extreme Orient. David is a long-term resident of Siem Reap, Cambodia, where he has worked at Angkor Wat for over a decade. His research interests include ceramics studies; the archaeology of urbanism, trade and cultural exchange; the history of art and architecture; and prehistoric societies.
David has a PhD in archaeology with the University of Sydney. He has taught archaeology, anthropology and world history to diverse audiences in Cambodia, Singapore and Australia.
