In 2011 Daniel completed the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) at Bournemouth University, graduating with Distinction. In 2014, Daniel successfully completed the LL.M. in European Law at Leiden Law School, graduating cum laude. During his studies at Leiden University, Daniel participated in the 2014/15 European Law Moot Court Competition, where he reached the All-European Final and won the prize for Best Written Memorials. During his studies, Daniel wrote his Bachelor’s thesis on the human rights implications of anti-terrorism legislation in the United Kingdom, and his Master’s thesis on the consequences of the Court of Justice’s decision in Dano for the future of European Union Citizenship.
Daniel has a wide range of interests, particularly the free movement of persons within the European Union, including workers and Union Citizenship. Daniel is also interested in the protection of social rights within the internal market; the protection of fundamental rights in the European Union; and issues arising from the United Kingdom’s upcoming exit from the EU.
The European Precariat: The free movement of workers in the era of precarious employment.
Daniel’s doctoral research investigates the relationship between the law on the free movement of persons, and the increase in flexible and precarious employment across Europe. In particular, the research projects seeks to demonstrate how the strict conditionality and categorization within the law can create a more uncertain and insecure system of free movement rights for EU migrants.
