He is also the Convenor of Deakin's Gender and Sexuality Studies Major in the Bachelor of Arts programme, and of Deakin's Gender and Sexuality Studies Research Network.

Current research focuses on queer youth and popular culture, queer youth histories and queer archive studies. He is also currently a Chief Investigator in a national research team working on an ARC-funded Discovery Project called "Queer Generations" studying how growing up LGBTQ has changed in Australia across two social generations.

His writing has appeared in a range of books and journals including Bodies of evidence: the practice of queer oral history (2012); After Homosexual: The Legacies of Gay Liberation (2013); Zombies in the Academy: Living Death in Higher Education (2013); Journal of Bisexuality (2014); Angelaki: Journal of the Theoretical Humanities (2015); Journal of Homosexuality (2016); and Bent St (2017).

He has also co-authored a social policy monograph for funding queer youth services in Victoria (Beyond Homophobia, 2010) and co-edited the 2011 book Secret Histories of Queer Melbourne (ALGA, 2011; reprinted 2018).  He has edited collections for Sex Education (2013), Radical History Review (2014; 2015), and The Review of Education, Pedagogy & Cultural Studies (2016), and  provided public commentary in The Conversation.

Daniel received his Ph.D. from the Department of English with Cultural Studies at the University of Melbourne.  He has previously held positions as a Research Fellow at the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society at La Trobe University, and as an invited Visiting Scholar at the Center for LGBTQ Studies (Graduate Center, City University of New York) and at the Weeks Centre for Social and Policy Research (London South Bank University). 

He is a past president of the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives, one of Australia's oldest national LGBTIQ organisations, where he established the Queer Youth Education Project in 2012.  In 2016 he helped launch Australia's first Queer/LGBTI+ History Month.   He has worked to establish community forums for activist and scholarly debate and collaboration, including co-organising (with CLAGS, The New School and OutHistory.org) the major "Gay American History @ 40" conference in New York in Spring 2016, bringing together people working inside universities as well as people working outside of them.

In 2018, the Gender and Sexuality Studies Research Network is hosting its 'First Fridays' series of monthly GSS masterclasses and public seminars at Deakin Downtown, as well as the national "Queer Legacies, New Solidarities" conference (22-24 November), in collaboration with AWGSA and ALGA.
