Personal profile

Biography

Daniel is a PhD student at the University of East Anglia supervised by Dr Simone Immler. He attained his undergraduate degree in Biomedical Science and graduated with a Master's degree in Prenatal Genetics and Fetal Medicine from University College London. During his postgraduate studies, Daniel was exposed to the latest technologies in genome editing and assisted reproduction techniques (ART) and developed a strong interest in reproductive biology. During his MSc, Daniel worked in the Sex Chromosome Biology lab at the Francis Crick Institute under the supervision of Dr Helen O’Neill, Dr Takayuki Hirota and Dr James Turner. His research focused on the use of iPSCs and CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing to better understand the function of the Y chromosome in reproduction.

Daniel’s interest in ART led him to conduct a PhD in Reproductive Science with Dr Simone Immler at UEA. He studies the genetics and genomics of reproduction, focusing on the male side. With the aid of the most recent molecular technologies and bioinformatics tools, Daniel aims to identify genes under haploid selection. His research will provide crucial insights into human fertility as well as animal breeders using in vitro fertilisation. 

Daniel is interested in the use of technology to overcome infertility disorders and improve healthspan.
