Daniel's research interests center on brain and cognitive evolution, particularly how selective pressures shape cognition and neuroanatomy differently within and across species as well as if and how humans evolved unique cognitive traits. He addresses these questions by integrating non-invasive cognitive, behavioral, and biological research in dogs, wolves, and free-ranging nonhuman primates. He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2016 with a B.S. in Psychology and minor in Anthropology. Before joining the ACCC, Daniel conducted research on human metacognition at UNC, as well as canine and non-human primate cognition at Yale University.
