Since completing his PhD in cell biology at the university of Coimbra and at McGill University in 2010, David has been building a career in the medical communication and linguistic services industry. He has been a distance education tutor and has worked for 4 years as a medical writer in a medical communications agency. David has since started his own business offering language services in the biomedical domain and has co-founded PhDesign, a media agency dedicated exclusively to serving the research community and to bridging the gap between the lab and society.
In parallel, David is interested in exploring the different ways people have navigated professional and personal life after completing their graduate degree. This curiosity and a deep-seated wish to help those now going through graduate school is what led him to launch the Papa PhD podcast.
