David Archibald graduated in geology from the University of Queensland in 1979. He first worked in coal exploration before joining Esso as an oil exploration geologist.
David then joined the stockbroking industry as an analyst, ultimately becoming a steel specialist. In 1998 he was hired as an expert witness in two cases before the Supreme Court of New South Wales: One as a petroleum geologist and the other in steel rolling mill design.
He became involved in cancer research, culminating in patent application as a co-author with two professors from Purdue University. After this, he went back to oil exploration and mining roles. He became interested in climate science in 2006 which led to him giving lectures on the subject in Senate and House hearing rooms in 2011 and 2013, respectively. He then became a visiting fellow at the Institute for World Politics in Washington D.C., a graduate school for the Department of Defense, State Department and US intelligence agencies.
In 2012, he edited and published a book on the role of phytoestrogens in modulating the human female hormone system. In 2018, he returned to performing cancer research. David gives lectures on climate, cancer science, COVID science and fighter aircraft design.
