Daniel is Associate Professor (Practice) in Carbon Markets at the Nanyang Business School. Before transitioning to academia full-time, he spent 17+ years in industry where he undertook a variety of roles across the Energy and Decarbonization value chains, including Commodity Trading, Acquisitions & Divestments, and Capital Project Delivery. Previous teaching appointments include Guest Lecturer on Shell's Advanced Negotiation Program and leading the delivery of its in-house executive Natural Gas Course. He has lived and worked in the UK and Singapore whilst leading negotiations/projects in various jurisdictions such as Australia, Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan and Thailand.

Within the context of Carbon Markets, he first began work in 2009 by establishing Shell's Carbon Trading desk in Singapore for compliance markets in Australia and New Zealand. In 2018, he moved upstream and led several initiatives to establish nature-based carbon projects in South-East Asia, primarily focused on forest conservation. Subsequently in 2021, as part of the management team, he helped to setup Climate Impact X, a Singapore-based voluntary carbon markets exchange focused on serving corporate clients globally, where he led the successful delivery of a landmark auction program for Blue Carbon.

His current teaching focus at the Nanyang Business School is on Climate Risk and Carbon Markets at the Undergraduate and Executive Education levels respectively.
