Clinical interest in lymphoma, myeloma, leukaemia, cellular therapies, thrombosis and general haematology

David graduated from medicine with honours from Monash University in 2006 and completed joint clinical and laboratory haematology training at Royal North Shore Hospital.

He has completed additional clinical fellowships in malignant haematology and cellular therapies at the BC Cancer Institute in Vancouver, Canada as well as Westmead and St Vincent’s Hospitals in Sydney.

David was appointed as a Staff Specialist with the Malignant Haematology and Stem Cell Transplant Service at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne in 2019, with an additional honorary consulting service to the lymphoma and myeloma clinic at Monash Health.

In 2021 David returned to Sydney to join the Haematology Department at Royal North Shore Hospital as a Staff Specialist.

David has a broad interest in malignant and non-malignant haematology, with a focus on patient-centred, evidence-based care. His research and education interests are in post-treatment survivorship outcomes and quality-of life.

Research interests

David is interested in research especially in the areas of haematology, cellular therapies, and transplantation.
