Personal profile

Dr Daniel Tischer has recently joined the Management Department as Lecturer in Management. His 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 interorganisational networks, credit derivatives, and currently carreers 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 infrastructres 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 conducting a comparative study on cooperative banking networks in the UK and Germany and has been a Research Officer at the Centre for Mutual and Employee-owned Business at the University of Oxford.

Daniel is also keen on supervising postgraduate students with an interest in social network analysis (SNA) and banking and finance.
