Daniel has a passion and drive to improve outcomes for patients undergoing breast cancer surgeries. He gained his PhD from Imperial College London in 2009 and conducts research into novel technologies including robotics, imaging, and sensing with a focus on reducing the burden of re-operative intervention for positive resection margins. His work has won many prestigious awards including the Sir Pat Forrest Research award, Parasuram Award and the Athanasiou Prize. He leads on technology clinical trials that seek to translate research into patient benefit.
