Dan is a PhD candidate in Geography at Clark University and a Visiting Fellow in the Program on Science, Technology and Society at the Harvard Kennedy School. His work sits at the intersection between economic geography, nature-society geography, and STS. He is broadly interested in the material, political-economic and social dynamics of science and technological innovation, especially related to synthetic biology and genetic engineering. His dissertation examines how science and biotechnology are being ‘democratized’ in community science labs.  

Before starting his PhD, Dan worked as a Research Assistant on geography projects at the University of Melbourne and Monash University. Dan earned an MA in Geography from Clark University, and a BA (Honours) in Geography and a BSc in Genetics and Environmental Science, both from the University of Melbourne.
