Dan is an MPA student at the School of Public and International Affairs. Born in Boston and raised in both Switzerland and central New Jersey, he pursued his undergraduate degree at the University of Michigan, earning a B.S. in economics and German with a minor in statistics. Before coming to Princeton, Dan served as a bank examiner at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), where he worked to examine emerging financial risks and assess compliance with Federal regulations in banks across the country. Through the MPA program, he hopes to combine his regulatory experience at the FDIC with a deeper understanding of policymaking in the financial and banking sectors. He is particularly motivated by the need for innovative policy solutions to adapt to a rapidly evolving global financial system, as well as by the importance of advancing cooperation between financial regulators at the international level.
