Daniel is a PhD student in Public Policy at Central European University (CEU), Vienna and he is a research fellow at the Institute of World Economics, Centre for Economic and Regional Studies, Budapest. His research focuses on the political economy of global carbon pricing mechanisms. Specifically, he analyzes how the (re)distribution effects of these climate policies and changing the incentive structures around carbon pricing (via compensation mechanisms, green industrialization, etc.) financed from revenue recycling, are then translated into different levels of stringency. He has been involved in numerous academic and policy projects on sustainability transition in the Central and Eastern European region. 

Daniel’s degrees include a BA in Political Science (from the University of Pécs, Hungary), BA in Economics (Budapest Metropolitan University, Hungary); an MA in Public Administration (Radboud University, the Netherlands). His multiple theses focused on wider political economy issues such as the influence of EU-level interest groups on environmental policy, and the expansion of the China-Africa economic relationship.
