Profile

Dr Patricia Arranz Alonso
Research Fellow


 

As a Master’s student at the University of Las Palmas I led the first taxonomic studies of ichthyoplankton in the island of El Hierro, Canaries. Soon after I enrolled into a PhD program at the University of La Laguna studying the foraging ecology and habitat selection by Blainville's beaked whales. From an integrative perspective, I used these results for the scientific design of a marine protected area for cetaceans in the Canary Islands.

I am currently working at Peter Tyack’s Lab on the Southern California Behavioral Response Study. My analysis primarily focuses on quantifying the foraging and diving behavior of free-ranging Risso’s dolphins (Grampus griseus).
