Overall, Daniel’s programme of research is animated by the following questions: what is the relationship between social policy, welfare politics and inequality? And considering this relationship, how should welfare (state) interventions be configured to effectively tackle poverty and disadvantage? To explore these questions, he has undertaken national and comparative research drawing on mixed methods approaches to critically examine the impact of state-citizen dynamics on human welfare across high-income countries. Daniel is a British Academy Wolfson Fellow in CASE. His current research draws on the Family Resources Survey, Understanding Society and qualitative longitudinal ethnographic research to explore the determinants, dynamics and policy implications of deep poverty. He is also Principal Investigator of the WHOCOUNTS project and affiliated with the Institute of Government and Public Policies at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. Funded by the European Research Council, WHOCOUNTS is re-examining poverty across Europe by addressing noncoverage error in official statistics and distributional analysis.
Daniel's latest projects include:
- Determinants, dynamics and policy implications of deep poverty
- Who Counts? Incorporating a ‘Missing Minority’ to Re-examine the Profile, Drivers and Depth of Poverty across Europe
