Daniel Moore is a marine vertebrate research scientist. His professional research interests are broad but include: spatial ecology of marine predators, population biology, connectivity in marine predator populations and chondrichthyan evolution. Daniel is a passionate conservationist and has worked in many remote locations around the world from isolated tropical volcanic islands to sub-arctic shorelines. When not pursuing his scientific interests he can usually be found seeking adventure in the mountains or on the ocean waves.

He is currently conducting PhD research at Durham University investigating how oceanographic and environmental boundaries can influence the population structure of marine predator populations. This research  uses the bottlenose dolphin Tursiops truncatus and the yellowmouth barracuda Sphyraena viridensis as model species and examines their population structure across multiple front systems in the Mediterranean sea.
