Daniel has compleded PhD on Ion Tracks in minerals such as quartz and apatite.

Previously he 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 Travel Award of the RSPE. He has been awarded the 2014 Materials Research Society (MRS) Graduate Student Silver Award in San Francisco, as well as the Young Researcher Best Talk Award.
