David Phillips (David Berman) is the assistant coroner to the chief medical examiner, Al Robbins (Robert David Hall), on "CSI." His self-ascribed nickname is "Super Dave, " which he received after saving the life of a victim during an autopsy. David spends a lot of time out in the field as Dr. Robbins is unable to do so due to his partial disability.
David is often teased by his colleagues about his lack of social experiences, although he does get married in season 7 to a woman who likes to hear about his work.
