Education

NatGeoHeadshot_BeltranI am currently a post-doctoral researcher at the University of California Santa Cruz funded by a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship in Biology (focus on inclusion of underrepresented minorities in science). I study the navigation and diving abilities of young-of-the-year elephant seals during their first ocean migration. This project is funded by a National Geographic Research and Exploration grant. You can follow along our Open Explorer Expedition.
