Daniel Day received his B.S. degree from Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia in 1996 with majors in physics and mathematics, and in 1997 received First Class Honours from Victoria University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia, in optics. He gained his Ph.D. degree from Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia, in 2001, researching three-dimensional optical data storage. His Ph.D. thesis was “Three-dimensional bit optical data storage in a photorefractive polymer”. Recently Daniel completed a Graduate Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Swinburne University of Technology. In 1998 he received the Australian Optical Society Postgraduate Student Award for his research into threedimensional optical data storage. He is a Member of the Australian Institute of Physics, Australian Optical Society, and the Optical Society of America. Since completing his Ph.D. degree, he has established the company 3DCD Technology Pty. Ltd. with Swinburne University which now holds several international patents in three-dimensional optical data storage. Currently he is a Research Fellow in the Centre for Micro-Photonics at Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia, conducting research into three-dimensional microfluidics and fabrication of threedimensional micro-environments for biological applications.
