Luis Huckstadt, Ph.D.

Submit your questions in advance HERE.

Tune in for the next Labside Chat with Luis Huckstadt, assistant researcher with the Institute of Marine Sciences at UC Santa Cruz, on Thursday, March 11, 2021 at 11:00 AM PST. Learn about the role large predators, such as marine mammals, play in the marine ecosystem.

Join the conversation! Submit your questions in advance for Luis, then watch the conversation to hear the answers during the live chat. Help us put together questions such as:

  • What are stable isotope analyses and biologging technologies, and how are they used to understand marine predators?
  • How are marine predators studied in hard-to-access areas such as high latitudes and polar regions?
  • Is there a link between changing environments and at-sea behaviors of marine mammals?

We want your questions! Submit your questions in advance HERE.
