Biography

Daniel holds a BA (economics and History), a Masters degree in Economic Science (International Finance) and is currently a PhD student at the J.E. Cairnes School of Business and Economics. His research interests are macroeconomics, finance and economic history. Daniel's PhD research "Currency, credit and trade in Ireland, 1698–1826" explored the relationship between Irish exchange rates, prices, credit conditions and international trade flows in the early modern era. The underlying focus of this work was a long run examination of the integration of Irish commodity and financial markets, the interation of the financial economy and the real economy and the effects of structural change in exchange rate regimes and economic crises. 

Throughout his  PhD, Daniel worked as a lecturer and teaching assistant on a range of financial and macroeconomics courses. These included financial economics, financial management, financial (time series) econometrics, international economics and macroeconomics. Prior to commencing his PhD, he worked as a researcher at GDSI and as a financial analyst for Deutsche Bank.
