Dr. Daniel Nyfeler

A geologist by formation, Daniel spent the fieldwork studies portion of his Master's thesis investigating the geology of the granulites in the Limpopo belt in Southern Africa. Following that, he worked on a joint research project on superconductors at the IBM Research Lab in R├╝schlikon, Zurich, together with Georg J. Bednorz (nobel prize in physics, 1987). Back at the University of Berne, he completed his PhD in mineralogical crystallography under Professor Thomas Armbruster, looking at steric and electronic stress situations in mineral structures and their influence on reactivity and atomic ordering. He then joined an international management consultancy, where he worked for several years as a strategy consultant. Daniel returned to the sciences and took over the position of Managing Director of the G├╝belin Gem Lab in 2003.
