Daniel is pursuing his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering and joined the Bazant group in January 2022. He received his Bachelor of Science in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from Cornell University in 2021. As an undergraduate, Daniel performed research into nonlinear wave dynamics leading to the formation of singularities in sheared particle-laden flows with Dr. Donald Koch and constructing computational models for cellular systems, specifically human platelets with Dr. Jeffrey Varner. Daniel’s current research focuses on developing and extending models of electrochemical systems. He is interested in mathematics, transport phenomena, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, computational modeling, and computational immunology. He is a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship recipient with hobbies of hiking, running, chess, cooking, and volunteering.
