David Carlisle studied mathematics at the University of Manchester and then worked as a researcher in the Mathematics and Computer Science departments at Cambridge and Manchester, where he started using LaTeX in 1987. He joined the LaTeX3 team in 1992, just prior to the start of development work on LaTeX2ε.

For the last six years he has worked at NAG Ltd. in Oxford, UK, primarily on projects connected to the development of XML-based languages for the representation of mathematical expressions and documents. He is an editor of the OpenMath specification and was an invited expert on the W3C Math Working Group responsible for MathML, becoming an editor of the MathML 2 Recommendation. Currently he is an editor of a proposed update to ISO/IEC TR 9573, the “ISO character entities”. This allows a wide range of characters to be entered into XML and SGML documents using only ASCII characters, with syntax such as γ to denote γ.
