His professional research interests are broad but include: spatial ecology of marine predators, evolutionary biology and connectivity in marine predator populations. Daniel is a passionate scientist and has worked in many remote locations around the world from isolated tropical volcanic islands to Antarctica. When not pursuing his scientific interests, he can usually be found seeking adventure in the mountains or on the ocean waves around the UK.
Daniel regularly works with businesses, NGOs and schools as a marine consultant and a passionate advocate for marine conservation. Daniel is an accomplished public speaker and writer.

He completed his PhD at Durham University, under the supervision of Prof. Rus Hoelzel. This body of work investigated environmental drivers of evolution in marine predator populations and used the bottlenose dolphin Tursiops truncatus and the yellowmouth barracuda Sphyraena viridensis from the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean as model species.
