Daniel joined the Department of Political Economy (DPE) in January 2020. In his PhD, he uses qualitative methods to investigate how politics affects economic outcomes. Daniel is particularly interested in understanding the strategic choices that political actors make during processes of policy making. He is currently working on three research projects related to the politics of social policies and the politics of economic growth.

In the current academic year, Daniel is leading seminars, as a Graduate Teaching Assistant, in the module ‘International Institutions and Global Governance’ at King’s. He is also a Post-Graduate Teaching Assistant at the Department of Political Science, University College London, where he is part of the teaching team of the module ‘How to Argue about Politics.’

Daniel is a member of research groups on Comparative Politics, Public Policy, and the Global South, and he is an affiliate at King’s Brazil Institute. He holds a MA in International Political Economy from King’s and a BA in International Relations from the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo (PUC-SP), both with distinction.
