Daniel Bui

Job title: 
BCCP Undergraduate

Daniel Bui is a graduating senior majoring in Political Science and minoring in Global Poverty and Practice. Born in Oakland to two Vietnamese refugees, he has experienced the hardships faced by working-class households, communities of color, and refugees in the area. As a result, many aspects of his life have been shaped by government programs and initiatives, fueling his deep passion for exploring public policy and governance—particularly in areas regarding immigrant adjustment and socioeconomic mobility. Daniel is thrilled to join BIMI this fall semester, where he hopes to conduct in-depth research into the historical, cultural, and integrative experiences of Vietnamese Americans across various U.S. regions. Prior to joining BIMI, Daniel served as an undergraduate research assistant to Dr. Kristina Lovato at UC Berkeley’s School of Social Welfare where he analyzed the implications of forced separation on unaccompanied minors and their families.
