Having completed a 4-year degree in Mechanical Engineering in the University of Oviedo (Spain), Daniel moved to the UK in 2015 to study a MSc in Materials Science and Engineering in the University of Sheffield followed by a PhD in the CDT in Advanced Metallic Systems between the University of Manchester and the University of Sheffield.

His PhD was a research collaboration with Rolls-Royce. This investigation was centred in the forging texture developments and machining effects in the mechanical properties of critical titanium jet components.

Daniel is currently working as a Research Associate between the Materials Science and Engineering department and the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre as part of the STAR research group in developing new technologies for materials characterisation in industrial environments.

Daniel is passionate about the application of low TRL level technologies into the industrial production processes for a more efficient use of resources through the understanding of Materials Science, enhancing manufacturing efficiency.
