David Wituszynski is passionate about water and wildlife, and asks a lot of questions. This has resulted in several degrees. After an undergraduate degree in chemical engineering, he obtained a masters degree while studying algal toxins in Lake Erie sportfish. For his doctoral work, he helped start and run a stormwater sampling program, while also developing an ecological sampling program for birds and insects in stormwater infrastructure. While in graduate school, David completed a civil engineering internship with EMI in the Uganda office in 2016. After graduation, David stayed on for several months to support active research programs. He started a fellowship in the Research and Development department at EMI in 2021.

In college, he was deeply involved in a local college ministry, planning events and leading a small group. He also participated in several mission trips with Campus Crusade for Christ. In graduate school, David was part of the campus graduate student fellowship (Intervarsity), a local church, and a chapter of the Au Sable Graduate Fellows. At church he was involved with media and kids teams, and he co-taught several classes about Christianity and the environment. David interned with EMI in 2016 and returned as a fellow in 2021.
