David is a Contract Specialist in the Office of Technology Transfer. His duties include reviewing, negotiating, and finalizing data and material transfer agreements, nondisclosure agreements, and research collaboration agreements with corporate and nonprofit entities. His background is in neuroscience, and he previously conducted research mapping and understanding the oscillatory signatures of cortical ensembles and afferent projections to the visual cortex, with a focus on the underlying inhibitory circuits. Before joining OTT, David interned with both the patent and licensing teams at Emory, as well as the licensing team at Georgia State University over the course of a year. David earned his PhD in neuroscience from Georgia State University where he studied the development of the visual system and the contributions of early visual experiences on the maturation of inhibitory neural circuits.
