"I like working with scientists to solve problems and bring a more operational element to their research, enabling more stakeholders to benefit from it. 

There are people with a range of skills at PML, working to understand and solve some of the environmental challenges we are facing, I enjoy being part of this. "

Dan studied at Aberystwyth University, starting with an undergraduate degree was in Physics, followed by a MSc in Geographical Information Systems and Remote Sensing then a PhD investigating the retrieval forest structure from Synthetic Aperture Radar data in the Department of Geography. After graduating from his PhD, Dan spent two years as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Microwave Systems Sensors and Imaging Lab (MiXIL) at the University of Southern California.
