David joined the University of Exeter Business School in 2018 as a postdoctoral research associate working on the VISTA-AR project (www.vista-ar.eu). The project will work closely with a number of tourist attractions in the South of England and the North of France to develop an understanding of visitor experiences, create new VR and AR digital tools, and explore new business models and opportunities presented by digital technology.

Prior to joining Exeter University, David worked as a research fellow at the University of Lisbon (Portugal), and later as PhD researcher at the University of Hull (UK). His research examined creative approaches to archaeological tourism, focusing particularly on the tourism potential of destroyed or physically inaccessible archaeological heritage. The research highlights the tourism potential of an otherwise ignored resource, and thus benefits cultural tourism businesses and construction developers whose work involves archaeological surveys.
