Daniel Sheard at Sheard Scientific
Dr Daniel Sheard has been a consulting scientist for over 25 years, working mostly for clients in the marine industry.
Daniel joined scientific consultancy Jarrett, Kirman & Willems in 1996. Following the merger between Jarrett Kirman and Brookes Bell, he became a partner. Daniel has travelled worldwide and attended on countless ships.
In 2021, Daniel started an independent consultancy, founding Sheard Scientific with his wife.
His expertise relates to scientific aspects of cargo being carried on ships or being handled or stored ashore. Dr Sheard believes that understanding the science underlying the behaviour of a commodity is always the essential starting point for explaining and diagnosing damage or deterioration. He has seen at first hand many of the more problematic commodities and has the experience and expertise to advise on how to handle them safely in emergency or crisis circumstances.
Daniel has chaired all the Lloyds/Informa conferences on liquefaction of solid bulk cargoes and takes a keen interest in all aspects of the topic.
