Dave's research interests lie in the fields of statistical mechanics and nonlinear dynamics. In particular, his research has examined how one might measure "complexity" or pattern in a mathematical system, and how such complexity is related to disorder. This work belongs to the constellation of research topics often referred to as "chaos and complex systems." In his research, Dave uses both analytic and computational techniques. Dave has authored research papers in journals including Physical Review E, Chaos, and Advances in Complex Systems. He has recently begun a research project looking at trends in extreme precipitation events in Maine.

David Feldman received a B.A. in Physics from Carleton College in 1991 and a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of California at Davis in 1998. From 1991-1993, he was a teacher of 9th and 10th grade physics and mathematics at The McCallie School in Chattanooga, TN. As a graduate student at UC Davis, Dave received several awards in recognition of both teaching and scholarship: The Dissertation Year Fellowship; The Chancellor's Teaching Fellowship; and he was nominated for the Outstanding Graduate Student Teaching Award.

Dave joined the faculty at College of the Atlantic in 1998. He served as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs from 2003-2007. At COA Dave has taught over twenty different courses in physics, mathematics, and computer science. Among these classes is Introduction to Chaos and Fractals, an introductory course for students with a preparation in algebra. Dave has authored at textbook based on this class, which is scheduled to be published by Oxford University Press in 2011.
