Dr Daniel Tischer's research interests evolve around the study of (global) finance and banking from a critical perspective, including ethical banking, retail banking studies and a wider engagement with the mutual and cooperative banking sectors.
Daniel's main research focuses on critical studies in finance and banking. He is particularly interested in applying social network theory and methods to banking, including studies of inter-organisational networks, credit derivatives, and careers in finance. Based on his interests, he is the co-founder of the "Networks in Finance" workshop held annually in Europe.
Together with colleagues from the Personal Finance Research Centre at Bristol, Daniel is currently developing a Financial Exclusion Index which aims to identify how access to physical financial infrastructures varies across urban (and rural) areas.
Daniel joined Bristol from the University of Manchester where he worked as Lecturer in Political Economy and Organisation Studies and wrote his PhD on ‘The Embeddedness of Ethical Banking in the UK’. He has been a fellow at the Social Science Center in Berlin and has been a Research Officer at the Centre for Mutual and Employee-owned Business at the University of Oxford.
