Daniel Starosta

Graduate student at UC Berkeley

I'm a graduate student at Berkeley's MDP program with a focus on equitable natural disaster resource access and the shift from disaster response to community-based disaster preparedness & adaptation. I'm especially interested in formalizing indigenous knowledge and "DIY" community wisdom in a systematic way in regards to hyper-localized disaster situations, understanding why certain processes or materials are preferred in certain contexts, and finding ways to use existing technology hacks in novel ways on the ground.

Daniel is a member of the following Themes, Networks or Projects

Human Mobility

Every year, millions of people move in the context of disasters. Disasters are expected to increase in frequency and intensity in the context of climate change. This theme explores the forced and voluntary forms of human mobility in the context of climate change, including related protection needs and adaptation options.
