Dan did his undergraduate work at Duke University and then spent a year as a Churchill Scholar doing research in NMR pulse-shaping with Ray Freeman at the University of Cambridge. He received his PhD in chemistry from the UC Berkeley, working with William H. Miller on quantum reactive scattering.  He completed a postdoc in theoretical chemistry at Columbia University, working with Bruce J. Berne. He moved to Notre Dame in 1999.

Dan is also the faculty advisor and a bagpiper for the Notre Dame Bagpipe Band. Other odd, but true facts: Dan played in a band with Ben Folds for a few months in 1987, and is an occasional character in the Sally Forth comic strip.
