Daniel's research focuses on the effectiveness and inequality of education systems, effects of institutions (especially early selection and vocational training), and performance measurement issues in education. He has also done research in school-to-work transition and gender-related topics. Currently, his research has shifted towards the effect of preferences (or non-cognitive skills) on school-outcomes and social inequalities in this relation.
