Daniel SchmachtenbergerDaniel Schmachtenberger (@theneurohacker) is the co-founder and director of Research and Development at the Neurohacker Collective, where he is focused on developing processes and technologies for advancing medicine and human optimization and hosts a podcast exploring those topics.
