Befriending a California sea lion (Zalophus californianus) pup

I am a comparative biologist interested in the foraging ecology of marine mammals.  For my MS thesis I studied the evolution of feeding strategies in phocids (seals) in Dr. Annalisa Berta’s lab at San Diego State University.

I am currently a Ph.D. student at the University of California Santa Cruz, and I am co-advised by Drs. Dan Costa and Rita Mehta.
