Daniel Herron

UX Researcher

I am a qualitative researcher in the Messenger Well-Being team, which aims to protect people from negative experiences on our messaging platforms. I work with teams across Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram to build experiences that prevent, remediate and detect harm.

Before joining Facebook I completed a Joint PhD between the University of Dundee and the University of Technology Sydney. My PhD research explored how technology can be used to support people managing their digital things after a relationship break up.
