Daniel received his BS in Chemical Engineering (minor in Philosophy) from New Mexico State University. After a variety of undergraduate research in diverse areas of chemical, biological, and mechanical engineering, he joined the Boyden lab in 2011 as a Bioengineering PhD student, where he worked for his thesis on a variety of new molecular technologies for engineering complex biological systems. He then went on to become a science advisor to the Open Philanthropy project.
