All Disciplines Scholar Award, New York University's Stern Business School - Business Law
Daniel is a Senior Lecturer at Aston University’s Law School. He exclusively researches the Credit Rating Industry and its regulation, operation, and impact upon the financial sector. He has founded the Credit Rating Research Initiative, bringing together leading voices in the field to push for a better environment within the sector. Daniel has also founded Aspiring Black Lawyers, an initiative designed to address the distinct underrepresentation of Black and Mixed-Heritage people in the legal sector by working with students and connecting them to specialists who can aid their development. At New York University’s Stern Business School, Daniel aims to establish the new credit rating initiative and develop a field-leading textbook on the credit rating field. By bringing together some of the world’s leading scholars and practitioners, the book will hopefully form a bridge between the field in the US and the UK. That bridge will be developed to inspire impactful collaboration in particular fields, like finding credit-rating based resolutions to global issues such as the debt renegotiation standstill affecting the world’s most vulnerable countries. Daniel will be exploring different areas of the US to learn about its deep history.
