Daniel is a Senior Lecturer in Forensic and Investigative Psychology. He obtained a first-class undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Huddersfield in 2014 and had completed his MSc degree in Investigative Psychology at the University of Huddersfield in 2015 in which he received a distinction. His MSc dissertation explored the behavioural and psychological narrative roles of both missing adults and missing children.

Daniel has recently completed his PhD that explored the effectiveness of missing children publicity appeals. This research explored the factors associated with improving the effectiveness of missing children publicity appeals for the descriptions used in appeals, the type and number of photographs used in appeals, the type of design of the appeals, and factors associated with why people do or do not contact the police to report a potential sighting of a missing child.

His main research interests focus primarily around missing persons and offender narratives of crime. Other research interests include geographical offender profiling, prospective person memory, eyewitness testimony, facial recognition, problematic gambling and the own-race and other-race bias effect.

Daniel has presented his research at numerous local, national, and international conferences to both academics, policy makers, and practitioners within numerous police forces. He has also consulted with a number of police forces relating to aspects associated with missing persons and criminal narratives.
