Daniel joined the Department of Political Economy (DPE) in January 2020. In his PhD he uses qualitative methods to investigate issues related to the political economy of democratic Brazil. He is currently working on two research projects: inequality and redistribution in Brazil; and the populism-anti-populism nexus in the rises to power of Donald Trump and Jair Bolsonaro.

At DPE he works as a Graduate Teaching Assistant, and he is a member of research groups on Comparative Politics, Public Policy, Political Theory, and the Global South. Finally, Daniel has organised webinars, book discussions, and other events in partnership with King’s Brazil Institute, where he is an affiliate.

Daniel 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.
