An ocean enthusiast, Chemical Ocean Engineer Daniel Anderson has worked to understand the science of the sea while keeping an eye toward marine hobbies such as SCUBA diving, fishing, and sailing. Becoming PADI certified in 2013, Daniel jump-started his career in understanding how these ecosystems were built while engaging in the predictive study of future changes from environmental impacts. In the School of Oceanography at the University of Washington, Daniel was able to expand his knowledge by studying marine chemistry and joining a research lab focused on biomineralization in the ocean. Spending months on research vessels, often under rough conditions, Daniel has dived in some of the most beautiful locations in the world and, has worked with remote populations to understand human impacts on the ocean.
Currently, Daniel is the lead technician of a project, working with faculty on a revolutionary ocean acidification project in the South Pacific islands attempting to understand the complex marine chemical changes at an ecosystem level.
It is Daniel’s desire to share with the international diving community his passion for ocean science through teaching.
