About Daniel

About Daniel
I have had years of experience in biomedical research, with a particular interest in how the human body changes with age. I worked for two years at the National Institute on Aging, where I studied how changes in the brain are associated with motor function. I primarily focused on motor control related to patients suffering from Parkinson's disease and motor learning in patients suffering from Alzheimer's. Following that, I worked at year at the Cochlear Center for Hearing and Public Health studying how hearing loss affects a person's gait...

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
During my undergraduate years, I worked two semesters as a teaching assistant for organic chemistry. As a graduate student, I worked three semesters as a teaching assistant for a gerontological introductory course. Starting fall 2020 I will be teaching this course at the University of South Florida.

Work Experience

Work Experience
Policy on Assisted Living Lab (PALL), University of South Florida, Collaborator
2019 - Present
This lab primarily focuses on researching the impact and barriers associated with the current policy guidelines surrounding assisted living facilities in the state of Florida. My role in the lab is to do statistical analysis for the multiple projects being conducted and help in the development of study designs.
Auditory and Speech Sciences Laboratory (ASSL), University of South Florida, Graduate Researcher
2019 - Present
In this lab, I am primarily engaged in studying how a person's gait changes with hearing. I collect, analyze, and interpret kinematic information collected from study participants. The knowledge gained from my research may allow hearing aids to use improved sensor technology to reduce an older person's risk of falling.
School of Aging Studies, University of South Florida, Teaching Assistant Introduction to Aging Studies
2019 - 2020
I helped the professor with grading, and I helped students with understanding the concepts surrounding the cognitive, physical, and sociological changes that result from aging. During each semester of my assistantship, I gave a lecture on the physical changes of aging.
Cochlear Center for Hearing and Public Health, Johns Hopkins, Graduate Researcher
2018 - 2019
While working in this lab, I studied the association between hearing loss and gait mechanics in older adults. Working here gave me an introduction to studying the auditory system, and experience with conducting a study from beginning to end.
National Institute on Aging, National Institutes of Health, Trainee
2016 - 2018
I collected and analyzed the data for a project developing a novel system for detecting changes movement for the upper-body. I also processed the gait lab data collected in the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging and helped to develop and pilot study looking at brain changes related to a Motor Learning Task.
