He is also an associate member of the Institute for Sustainable Energy at the University of Malta. In 2008, Daniel graduated, with first class honours, in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Malta. He started his professional career in the public sector with the Malta Resources Authority as an energy analyst. He joined the DUWIND group at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands where and pursued his PhD studies jointly with both TUDelft and the University of Malta. His research focused on furthering the understanding of wind turbine flow phenomena close to the tip using various approaches including vortex codes and particle image velocimetry. He graduated with a PhD degree from TUDelft in 2012. Daniel later continued his post-doctoral research career at the University of Malta working mostly on Computational Fluid Dynamics and Finite Element Analysis of novel welding techniques. He then became resident academic at the University of Malta. Daniel published in high quality peer reviewed journals and conferences worldwide. His current major interests are in the fields of fluid mechanics, wind energy, wind engineering and building physics. He is currently a reviewing editor in engineering of the journal "Experimental Results" by Cambridge University Press. He is also editor of the journal Energies by MDPI. Apart from his research activities, he lectures in both undergraduate and masters courses. He was a former president of the Chamber of Engineers of Malta. Dr. Micallef secured extensive research funding through both local and European projects where he had the roles of project leader and work package leader.
