Daniel is a PhD student investigating Ion Tracks in minerals such as quartz and apatite.
Daniel has studied physics at University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany) and Loughborough University (UK). He has gathered experience with synchrotron-based X-ray techniques such as Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) and X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) at the ESRF (France), the Australian Synchrotron (Melbourne) and SPring-8 (Japan).
Daniel is recipient of the Student Poster Award of the Australian Synchrotron 2012 User Meeting and the 2013 Robert and Helen Crompton Award of the RSPE.
