The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Classical mechanics, Inflation, Perturbation, Adiabatic process and Cosmology. He studies Scalar field, a branch of Classical mechanics. His study in Inflation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Field, Gaussian and Astrophysics.

His work carried out in the field of Perturbation brings together such families of science as Gravitational field, Curvaton and Quantum fluctuation. His research investigates the link between Cosmology and topics such as Gravitational wave that cross with problems in Symmetry breaking. His Inflaton study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Non-Gaussianity, Primordial fluctuations and Particle physics.

His primary areas of study are Statistical physics, Inflation, Non-Gaussianity, Classical mechanics and Inflaton. His Statistical physics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Scalar field, Quantum and Differential equation. David Wands focuses mostly in the field of Inflation, narrowing it down to topics relating to Boundary value problem and, in certain cases, Mechanics.

His Non-Gaussianity research incorporates elements of Bispectrum, Galaxy, Theoretical physics and Planck. His Classical mechanics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of First-hitting-time model and Curvature perturbation. His Inflaton research focuses on Field and how it connects with Slow roll, Scalar and Minimal coupling.
