Daniel’s research interests are broad, but mostly grounded in psychometric assessment and the application of sensory psychology to the assessment and explanation of psychopathology. Current projects include the relationship between psychosocial stressors and personality, olfactory assessment of psychopathology, autonomic imbalance in mental illness and caregiver experiences in mental health.
