Daniel Preece

I completed my undergraduate degree in degree in Forensic and Analytical Science. After working in the forensic and chemical industry for three years I have discovered I want to do more research based opportunities. As a sceptical scientist and blogger, research is something that i have always aspired to do.


The iT-CDT gives me the opportunity to work with industry in a research based setting in an area which really appeals to my interests. Coming from an Analytical Chemistry background I have limited knowledge of tribology, after discovering its meaning I have since noticed that is it applied to every environment, including the fields I have worked in - which makes it easily relatable to my previous experiences. Doing a PhD means I get to study further and develop more knowledge whilst discovering new things and developing new skills.
