Daniel grew up in Richmond, Vermont and graduated from Mount Mansfield Union High School in 2005. He earned his bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from RPI and remained an extra year to get his MS in Mathematics. Daniel received his PhD in Mathematics from the University of Michigan in 2015 where his thesis advisor was Andreas Blass. He spent 3 years as a Visiting Assistant Professor (Postdoc) at the University of Denver before joining UVM in August 2018.
