Investigations and reports
Daniel has freelanced as a researcher since 2004, producing reports for a range of clients from investors to activists. His work cuts through hype and assumptions, presenting clear, well-sourced conclusions.
Persistent and resourceful, Daniel uncovers compelling evidence, using interviews, archived material and close observation. He outlines his findings in written reports and multimedia presentations.
He has conducted assignments around the world for Baillie Gifford, which manages £150 billion in investments. His research investigates companies, sectors and technologies from an outsider's point of view.
In addition, he writes technical briefings for non-specialists. Some recent examples include competitive video-gaming, 3D printing, solar power networks and digital payment systems.
For his MA in Traditions of Yoga and Meditation (from SOAS in London), Daniel researched a dissertation on mindfulness teaching in schools. Other work from the course is archived here, and on his academia.edu profile.
He has also contributed research to documentaries, including The Age of Stupid, starring Pete Postlethwaite, which explored how corporate and individual inertia stops action on climate change.
