Daniel Waters works in the Centre for Analytical Modelling, conducting research in the areas of universal basic income (UBI) and democracy. He is using analytical modelling techniques to: 1) Integrate a UBI into existing (optimal) taxation systems; and 2) Connect the media to the ‘imagined communities’ (Anderson, 1983) that shape democracies.
His master’s thesis titled "China’s Growing Influence in Sub-Saharan Academia" is at the nexus of development economics and global politics. Daniel continues to work as a Research Fellow at the Institute for Nigeria-China Development Studies, University of Lagos, and his research is in the final stages of review ahead of publication.
Daniel comes to Radboud from the China-Australia Chamber of Commerce, Beijing, where he was managing their industry engagement and reports. Daniel has long engaged with Chinese culture and language, including studying at Fudan University as a Westpac Asian Exchange Scholar, and Beijing Normal University on a Confucius Institute Young Leaders Fellowship.
Daniel holds a Bachelor of Science (Mathematics and Statistics) and Diploma of Languages (Chinese) from the University of Melbourne and a Master of Science (Economics and Strategy in Emerging Markets) from Maastricht University/United Nations University-MERIT.
