David Reid is a Research Fellow for Sigma Research. He joined Sigma in 1993 after working in Australia both as a gay men’s health promotion officer and as a researcher with people living with HIV. He works on a wide range of research projects but specialises in survey promotion, data management and analysis. He has been instrumental in the success of the Gay Men's Sex Survey since it went national in 1997. While he can often be found buried in large data sets he welcomes queries about our survey data and its analysis. He is currently completing an MSc in public health and health promotion at South Bank University.
