Daniel Bernoulli (1700-1782) was a renowned mathematician and physicist from a family of famous mathematicians. His father, Johann, was central to the development of calculus and his uncle, Jacob, played a role in creating probability theory. Born in Groningen, his family moved to Basel when he was young. Daniel studied in Basel, Heidelberg, and Strasbourg and had a wide network of savants, including Leonhard Euler, who he worked with in St. Petersburg from 1724-33. Bernoulli worked as a professor in medicine, metaphysics, and natural philosophy at the University of Basel. While there, he collaborated on a world map and a globe with Isaac Brouckner.
