As a research analyst for EDF’s Natural Gas Campaign, David provides technical support for EDF’s ground-breaking study to quantify methane emissions from the natural gas value chain. His work at EDF includes researching technologies and policies to reduce natural gas leakage and minimize the climate impacts of natural gas development.
David worked for the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) as coordinator of the state’s air pollution emissions inventory program. While at ADEQ, David was project manager of an EPA funded study to study emissions and air quality impacts of natural gas development in the Fayetteville Shale. He also managed a half-million dollar project to develop and implement a web-based emissions inventory reporting system for a multi-state consortium of environmental agencies.
