Daniel Teodoro is a Ph.D. student in the department of Department of Geographical Sciences at the University of Maryland, College Park. His research characterizes scientist-stakeholder participation in the management of socio-ecological systems through a social network perspective and evaluates the role of indicators as part of these processes. His dissertation will examine this question using case studies from both a developed country (Maryland, USA) and developing country (Tasajera, El Salvador) with the goal of conducting actionable science to improve natural resource management. Additionally, Daniel is the founder of a grassroots sustainable development initiative in El Salvador called <em>EMANA Initiative</em> that has supported science-based community development interventions in coastal villages within a marine protected area.
Outside of scientific work, Daniel collaborates in music, photography, and short film projects with friends.
