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’s work details how political parties in Brazil behaved, between the 1990s and 2010s, when they were voting on redistributive policies. The provisional title of his thesis is The Politics of Public Policy: Three Decades and Five Cases of Equity-Enhancing Reforms in Democratic Brazil.

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.
