David Walker is the facility manager for the X-ray diffraction X-ray research technology platform led by Professor Richard Walton. He has 20 years’ experience in X-ray scattering techniques with a background in crystallography and ferroelectric materials. David has managed the X-ray diffraction equipment at Warwick since 2008, with the RTP formally founded in 2014.

He is responsible for training and assisting users from a wide spectrum of scientific backgrounds to use the equipment independently and interpret the X-ray data that they collect. David has a strong track record of working with over 40 companies and other higher education institutions to tackle challenging problems using X-ray scattering techniques.

David is available to provide advice and support on all aspects of X-ray diffraction and scattering, but in particular High-resolution diffraction and Powder diffraction. Prior to 2014, he was a member of the Ferroelectrics & Crystallography group headed by Professor Pam Thomas, since 2001 when he began his PhD, a long-term project with the ESRF undertaking X-ray imaging of ferroelectric domains.
