Daniel is a vertebrate palaeontologist from Alberta, Canada. He is a University Lecturer in the Department of Earth Sciences, and a Research Associate at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Daniel received his PhD from the Department of Geology & Geophysics at Yale University in 2016.

Daniel's research aims to use the vertebrate fossil record to answer questions about how, where, and when modern vertebrate biodiversity arose. He is passionate about natural history, evolution, and science outreach, and enjoys studying and photographing wildlife in the field. Work in Daniel's lab aims primarily to decipher the origins of modern avian diversity, although he has deep interests in evolutionary questions across the vertebrate tree of life.
