Biographical Sketch

Daniel was born in Lienz, Austria in 1989. After graduating with distinction at the Technical High School for Mechatronics in Lienz, he started his study in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Technology in Graz. During his bachelor studies, Daniel became more and more interested in the field of biomechanics and so he decided to specialize in biomechanical engineering for his Master Degree. In his spare time, Daniel likes to go skiing, mountain biking and hiking in the mountains.
