Daniel completed a Bachelor of Engineering (Environmental Engineering) with first class honours and a Bachelor of Arts (Japanese) at the University of Western Australia in 2009. He started his PhD project, molecular scale mechanisms that contribute to the fate of uranium during iron oxide crystallization (refer to Uranium Mobility project) in July 2009 at the University of NSW Water Research Centre.
· The fate of uranium and other redox active species during iron oxide crystallisation
· The use of synchrotron radiation to determine crystal structure
· Mineral transformations in acid sulfate soils
