Daniel's childhood fantasy has always been about using scientific and engineering principles to improve human healthcare. After his senior high school, he enrolled in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Ghana and graduated with a First-Class Honours. He was the best graduating student from the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Faculty of Engineering Sciences, University of Ghana.
Daniel enrolled at the Graduate School of Nuclear and Allied Sciences at the University of Ghana to undertake his Master of Philosophy (MPhil) degree in Medical Physics. His MPhil research was in dosimetry in external photon beam radiotherapy. Specifically, Daniel's MPhil research characterized the use of GafChromic EBT2 film for dose measurements using a tissue-equivalent water phantom for a Theratron Equinox Cobalt-60 Teletherapy Machine.
After his master's degree, Daniel obtained a Doctoral Scholarship from The University of Auckland, New Zealand, to pursue his PhD studies in Bioengineering at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute. Daniel employed computational modelling in developing an in-silico model of the Arterial Spin Labelling (ASL) Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) protocol. ASL MRI is an imaging modality previously developed for cerebral capillary blood flow quantification but has been adapted for estimating pulmonary capillary blood flow. Daniel completed his PhD studies in 2021 with a dissertation titled "In-silico Modelling to Advance Arterial Spin Labelling Magnetic Resonance Imaging".
Daniel is currently a lecturer at the Department of Computer Engineering, KNUST, where he teaches courses in Biomedical Engineering. His research interests are Computational Medical Image Processing and Computational Physiological Modelling.
