Summary

Daniel is a lecturer in Forensic Science at the Hull York Medical School.

Daniel obtained an Honours degree in Forensic and Analytical Science from Sheffield Hallam University, before becoming a forensic drug analyst, where he worked with the police, and other clients, on the analysis of drugs of abuse, and drug-related evidence for criminal courts.

He has also had work experience within the NHS, working in the virology and toxicological sector before becoming a laboratory manager for an analytical company. Following this, Daniel pursued a PhD at the University of Sheffield, studying the bio-tribological properties of contaminated gloves for forensic and clinical purposes. This opportunity allowed him a secondment in Kluang, Malaysia, working with polymer manufacturing plants.

After gaining his Ph.D. in 2021, Daniel worked at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, lecturing in Forensic and Analytical sciences before joining the University of Hull in 2022.

I teach on the B.Sc. for the Forensic Science programmes and I am the module coordinator and lecturer for the Introduction to Forensic Science and the Forensic Analysis of Drugs modules. I also teach analytical chemistry on some modules throughout the course and run workshops for the foundation years 'Preparing for Learning in Higher Education'.
