Dave came to the University of New England in 1994 following completion of his M.D. (University of Wisconsin) and M.A. (History of Medicine/Science, University of Wisconsin) degrees. He teaches courses in anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, cardiovascular physiology, human reproduction, and embryology. His areas of research have included the effects of individual learning styles on collaborative clinical problem-solving, the cardiovascular and neurologic effects of purposeful vs. non-purposeful activity, and, more recently, the study of the emotional and cardiovascular effects of art-making.
