Ari Daniel

Digital Producer & Independent Science Reporter

Ari Daniel has always been drawn to science and the natural world. As a graduate student, Ari trained gray seal pups (Halichoerus grypus) for his Master’s degree in Animal Behavior at the University of St. Andrews, and helped tag wild Norwegian killer whales (Orcinus orca) for his Ph.D. in Biological Oceanography at MIT and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. And for the last 9 years, as a science reporter, Ari records a species he’s better equipped to understand — Homo sapiens.

Ari produces digital interactives and web videos for NOVA, and he has reported on science topics across five continents with his radio stories appearing on PRI’s The World, NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered, Radiolab, Studio 360, Here and Now, Marketplace, and Living on Earth.

Ari is the lead producer of an occasional live storytelling, radio, and music show at the Charles Hayden Planetarium at the Museum of Science in Boston. And he co-produces the Boston branch of Story Collider, a live storytelling show about science.

In the fifth grade, Ari won the “Most Contagious Smile” award.
