Daniel Lobo is a PhD student in the Department of Sociology with an emphasis in Political Economy at UC Berkeley. He is broadly interested in how culture, or the unspoken “rules of the game,” reproduces inequality within a system of racial capitalism. At the individual level, he is interested in documenting and measuring the extent to which cultural capital and social capital enable or constrain opportunities for intergenerational mobility. At the organizational level, he is interested in documenting and measuring the extent to which culturally-based selection and promotion processes reproduce inequality and social closure in the education and labor markets. He is trained in social theory, qualitative methods, computational social science, hierarchical linear modeling, and full cycle experimental methods. Daniel holds a BA in Social Studies, with high honors, from Harvard College.
