Daniel’s doctoral research focused on the role of infrastructure in sustainable development. In particular, he looks at how infrastructure investments and policies can be most effectively implemented in order to achieve progress toward the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on climate change. Daniel uses engineering-based national infrastructure systems models to assess infrastructure needs in the context of uncertainty around future demographic, economic and climate change drivers in a range of international contexts, including small island and post-conflict countries.
Daniel’s research is part of the Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium (ITRC), led by the University of Oxford. He also collaborates with the UN Office for Project Services (UNOPS) developing methodology and tools to enhance sustainability in infrastructure project delivery.
Prior to Oxford, Daniel spent nearly three years at the OECD Development Centre with a focus on economic and fiscal development in Latin America. He holds an MSc in Environmental Change and Management from Oxford, an MPhil in International Economics from Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and a BA from McGill University.
