David is Senior Lecturer in Theology and Ethics in the University of Edinburgh. He has published widely on the Eucharist, modern French Catholic theology, and theology and material practice. He is Deputy Editor of Ecclesiology, Associate Editor of Brill Research Perspectives in Theology, a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a member of the Association Internationale Cardinal Henri de Lubac.

In 2015, David led a project 'Church Network Responses to Poverty' funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. This aimed to catalyze theological reflection and conversation on urban poverty in Britain today across disciplinary and stakeholder boundaries. The final report is here.

He is co-investigator on the 'Christian ethics of farmed animal welfare' project, also funded by the AHRC.

His volume on Henri de Lubac is due out next year.

David's major book Material Eucharist was published by Oxford University Press in 2016.
