Daniel is a research hydrologist for the department and leads the River Ecology Group in Moncton, NB. Part of the Catamaran Brook Habitat Research Project since 1989, he has published extensively in the field of hydrology and fish habitat. His main research interests are: the understanding the thermal regime of rivers and river heat fluxes, stream temperature modeling, instream flow requirements, statistical hydrology (floods and droughts), river hydraulics and anthropogenic impacts. Daniel also designed a new automatic evaporation pan to better understand river heat exchange processes. He has obtained numerous research grants over the years and held a NSERC Discovery Grant at Dalhousie University (2005-2010). He has taught both river hydrology and river hydraulics courses at Université de Moncton, and contributes to the Canadian Water Resources Journal, as a member of the Editorial Board.
