Phd Researcher Profile
Daniel’s research interests lie at digital marketing in the context of a small business. Specifically, his research focuses on the topics of how digital technology is used as a resource for small businesses and how digital content can improve effective customer relationships. His study is funded by the Vice-Chancellor's Research Scholarships (VCRS) from Ulster University.
Prior to starting his doctorate, Daniel received a Masters (MSc) in Marketing from Ulster University in 2017. He was awarded with a Santander scholarship and the Pure Running award for excellence of top mark in the module of Digitising Marketing (MKT735). His dissertation was under the supervision of Dr Damian Gallagher in developing a conceptual framework for micro-enterprise in rural North West Ireland to adopt digital technologies.
From 2017-2019, Daniel served as a Digital Marcom Specialist and Product Marketing Manager (PMM) for a 3D printing company in Taiwan. His previous studies and the industry experience subsequently developed into his current PhD project.

During the study, he won the overseas exchange scholarship from Taiwan to Institute of Technology Sligo in Ireland for a half year.

International education allowed Daniel to free up new dimensions to the life and face the globalising world with optimism. Since then, he has been passionate about education equality and diversity with respect to religion, race, sexuality, age and economic background. He had delivered more than 20 speeches to over a thousand Taiwanese schoolchildren sharing how his original scholarship allowed his completion of international higher education studies (2015-2017).
