Daniel joined the Centre for Exploration Targeting, University of Western Australia, as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow under Prof. Steffen Hagemann, in mid-2017. His research focuses on the establishment of a 4D tectonic-structural model for the formation of a granitoid-hosted gold-bearing quartz vein-system in the Carboniferous Pataz region, Eastern Andean Cordillera, Peru.

Daniel received his M.Sc. at the University of Kiel, Germany, studying the crustal evolution of the Archaean Western Dharwar Craton, South India (supervisor Prof. V. Schenk). For his contribution on the tectonic evolution of the early Archaean Doolena Gap greenstone belt and adjacent Muccan Granitic Complex, East Pilbara Terrane, Western Australia, Daniel was awarded a Ph.D. at the Queensland University of Technology (supervisors Dr. D. Murphy, Dr. C. Schrank).

Expertise: Geological mapping, field-based structural geology, petrology, geochemistry, geochronology, Archaean geology

Daniel is frequently involved in teaching of undergraduate students.
