Leader, Hydrogen Energy Systems Future Science Platform, CSIRO, Australia

Title: Advances in Low-Carbon Hydrogen Production, Storage, and Utilisation: Feeding the Science and Technology Pipeline


Dr. Daniel leads CSIRO's Hydrogen Energy Systems Future Science Platform. Before taking on the FSP role, Daniel led the High Efficiency Thermal and Electrochemical Technologies research group within CSIRO Energy. He continues to play a senior role in CSIRO’s research activities in the area of gasification for hydrogen production, as well as thermochemical pathways for boienergy production from biomass and waste. Daniel has more than 20 years' experience in the study of the fundamentals of gasification and combustion and their application to industrial scale systems. He has a background in environmental chemistry (Macquarie University) and chemical engineering (the University of Newcastle). During his postdoctoral studies with the CRC for Coal in Sustainable Development Daniel spent 6 months as a visiting researcher with the Central Research Institute of the Electric Power Industry in Japan, as part of the team providing the R&D support to the development of Japan's first IGCC power generation demonstration plant.
