Dan Reisel is a hospital doctor and Research Fellow in Epigenetics at University College London, where combines clinical work with research into how nature and nurture co-create the mind.
He is particularly interested in how stress impacts on the brain and how to enable effective learning during both development and adult life. He is passionate about the need to redefine how we think about morality and what science can offer us in terms of placing morality on a new, universal footing.
He holds a PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Oxford investigating how learning rewires the brain and a BA in Psychology from the University of Cambridge. Since then, his research has been concerned with the effect of life events on gene function. Dan is currently training to become an accredited restorative justice facilitator with the UK Restorative Justice Council.
He was a 2013 TED speaker.
