Walters is the Regulation Fellow in the Penn Program on Regulation. He joins the program as a Ph.D. candidate in Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he is writing a dissertation on agency agenda setting and the politics of petitioning federal agencies for rulemaking.  Aside from the dissertation, Daniel is currently involved in two co-authored projects on more general topics in law and courts: one on explaining the choice of rules and standards in commerce clause cases as a function of judicial capacity, and the other examining the factors determining the Supreme Court’s invocation of foreign law.


Daniel holds a J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School (2012), where he was a member of the Michigan Law Review and served as the Editor-in-Chief for the inaugural volume of the Michigan Journal of Environmental & Administrative Law. He has published works on representation and balance of interests on federal advisory committees (in the Michigan Law Review and the Journal of Public Administration Research & Theory) and on bureaucratic autonomy (in the Journal of Law and Politics). He has a forthcoming article in the Georgetown Law Journal on the Supreme Court’s citation of transnational law, as well as a forthcoming article in the University of Illinois Law Review on blue slips and ideological obstruction of federal judicial nominations.
