Personal profile


Daniel works in the School of Mathematical Sciences at Monash University as a Lecturer.

His mathematical research is in geometry, topology and mathematical physics, including:

  • knot theory
  • contact and symplectic topology
  • hyperbolic geometry
  • Floer homology
  • topological quantum field theory

He also has a law degree and is interested in a wide range of other social issues, including civil liberties, inequality, and international law.
