Hailing from Australia, David was a training consultant at IRRI HQ since the early 2000s, and was a major player in the development of IRRI's Rice Knowledge Bank. He was well-liked by his colleagues for his friendly demeanor, his wisdom, and dedication to his work. The institute sends our deepest condolences to David’s family, friends, and loved ones.
