Daniel investigates atmospheric processes that shape our climate at local and regional scales. He currently focuses on the various factors that interact to generate tropical precipitation such as sea breeze, topography, evapotranspiration and convection, and our ability to represent them in high-resolution models. In particular, Daniel studies the characteristics of rainfall in the Maritime Continent, where the interplay of these factors create very specific precipitation patterns. Daniel is also interested in the effects of cities on the local climate, the implications of climate change at local-to-regional spatial scales, the variability of extreme climate events under present and future climate conditions, and the climate aspects of wind and solar energy. His research was carried out at different institutions such as University of Granada (Spain), University of New South Wales (Australia), University of Hawaii at Manoa (US) and University of Balearic Islands (Spain).
