Daniel is a post-doc research fellow with the Cyclone Testing Station. His research experience covers a wide range of wind engineering disciplines including: insurance claims analysis for severe wind events, field-deployed anemometry for cyclones, vulnerability and fragility modelling, wind-borne debris trajectory modelling, post-event damage assessment, wind resistance of roofing systems, structural retrofitting for wind and water ingress, wind tunnel testing, behavioural aspects of community cyclone preparedness, etc. Daniel is also the director of ResilientResidence™, a mobile application tool that allows homeowners to self-asses the vulnerability of their home to wind and wind-driven rain damages. The tool aims to put wind engineering research directly into the hands of homeowners in vulnerable regions.
