Daniel arrived in the Seattle area in 1992 from a professorship at Stanford University to be part of the then nascent Microsoft Research. He spent much of his time at Microsoft Research working on automatic bug detection and program analysis tools. He left Microsoft to follow interests in biotechnology and molecular biology. Unfortunately, his scientific training left him susceptible to deeply understanding the physics of climate change and dynamical systems, as well as how the process of science itself requires that the actual threat be understated. Daniel now spends his time tracking climate change literature. He holds MS and PhD degrees from MIT. To relax, Daniel likes to cycle around on his road bike and grow vegetables in his garden.
