Daniel Tipton is the director of the Biology Service Facility that supports all three biology departments. Daniel is more than a technical project manager, he is very knowledgeable about a range of topics from electrical wiring loads, to building codes, to autoclave repair, and as such, leads his team by example.
Daniel manages this team with exceptional leadership and financial skills. He works hard to liaise with the college infrastructure staff and UT Facilities Services and is making strategic plans for growing the facility to continue to provide the specialized support that Biology research requires.
Daniel is level-headed, extremely competent and is the kind of technical manager that you want on your side when things go wrong.
