York, UK

I analyse large amounts of data from a wide variety of sources to better understand and improve the customer experience. Optics is an enabling technology in so many industries and Edmund Optics has an extensive catalogue of products, consequently EO has an extremely broad range of customers facing lots of different challenges. It is my job to uncover new ways to meet and exceed their expectations.Right Quotation Mark

Daniel has a Masters degree in Astrophysics from the University of Edinburgh and a second in Computer Science & Data Analytics from the University of York. He began his career with EO in 2013 as a Spanish-speaking sales and applications engineer before joining the EU marketing team in 2016 as a product marketing manager. He joined the Marketplace business line as Customer Intelligence Lead in January 2021 and is passionate about using analytics and machine learning to turn data into actionable insight.


My Biggest Accomplishment

I designed and built a laser optics product demonstration for one of our largest tradeshows. Seeing my concept move from the lab bench to the tradeshow floor and seeing the positive reactions from customers was hugely rewarding.
