Dr. Medrano, defended his doctoral dissertation at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in May. He accepted a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University where he is a Ziff Environmental Fellow for 2017-2019. He plans to revise his dissertation for publication and commence a second project on the edible ocean in the age of climate change.
