Lab pictureDaniel Moore is a Visiting Researcher at the University of Exeter where he is developing investigations into the effects of past climate change on deep sea megafauna. Additionally, he works as Chief Scientist for an Expedition Vessel operating in Antarctica and the Great Lakes. With an expert knowledge on evolutionary ecology in marine vertebrates, Daniel has conducted research on a range of species from dolphins to salmonids, sea turtles to sharks. He completed his doctoral research at Durham University in which he investigated the genetic population structure and evolutionary biology of Bottlenose Dolphins and Yellowmouth Barracuda in the Mediterranean and Eastern Atlantic.

Having a passion for fieldwork and exploring wild places has led Daniel to work in many exciting and often challenging marine environments. Highlights include recording nest temperatures of green turtles on the rugged volcanic shores of Ascension Island and investigating the biology of deepsea sharks onboard a research vessel that were captured over a mile below the surface.
