Daniel was a Ph.D. student working in HiPSEC under Dr. Andrew Cornelius. His work was focused primarily on high pressure X-ray absorption spectroscopy of intermediate-valence compounds. Together with Dr. Farzana Nasreen, he was doing partial florescence yield and X-ray absorption near-edge spectroscopy measurements at HPCAT and the Magnetic Materials Group in sectors 16 and 4, respectively, of the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory. They were studying intermetallic and organometallic compounds containing Cerium, Ytterbium, and Uranium at high pressure and low temperature. He also worked on high pressure X-ray diffraction, resistivity, and low temperature magnetic measurements of unconventional superconductors under Dr. Ravhi Kumar. His master’s program work was done on the magnetic properties of geometrically-frustrated materials.
