Daniel joined Science in 1993 as one of the founding members of the magazine's first international office in Cambridge, U.K. When not stalking the corridors of power for policy stories, his beat mainly revolves around the big machines of science: fusion reactors, particle accelerators, neutron sources, space probes, telescopes, and power stations.
Born in the United Kingdom and brought up in Canada, Daniel returned to the United Kingdom for high school and a degree in theoretical physics at York University. Fleeing academe, he worked his way from the former Electronics & Power magazine, via Physics World, to New Scientist before joining Science. Working from the rural idyll of Woodbridge in Suffolk, Daniel likes to run along the banks of the River Deben pursued by his dog.
