Research Statement: 

Daniel is a bioclimatologist-in-training with specialization in climate dynamics and dendrochronology. He has experience working with observational climate and general circulation model data, as well as the quantitative and field methods of dendrochronology. His dissertation research considers the drivers of change in spatial and temporal hydroclimate, with an emphasis on dynamic and thermodynamic causes of decadal-to-centennial precipitation trends and variability over eastern North America.
