Danel was born and raised in Seattle, WA. He then headed to Los Angeles to study Electrical Engineering at Caltech, where he graduated as part of the Tau Beta Pi honor society. Beyond his coursework, Daniel conducted research in applied physics including a few-month stint with Samsung’s research division in Korea, which earned him Caltech’s annual senior thesis award. Daniel then won the Churchill Scholarship, which funded a research based master’s degree in physics at the University of Cambridge in the UK. He is now pursuing a PhD in Applied Physics at Harvard.
Daniel has had a variety of previous teaching experiences. During his undergraduate Daniel was a teaching assistant for two different classes: an introductory electrical engineering course and graduate level probability models. He also was a Dean’s tutor at Caltech, tutoring his peers in a range of subjects including math, physics, and computer science. At Cambridge Coaching, Daniel specializes in tutoring mathematics and physics in addition to the ACT and GRE.
Outside of work, Daniel is an avid rower. He also enjoys running, cycling, and watching basketball and soccer.
