Welcome to Rob Salguero-Gomez' Population Ecology Group
 
My name is Rob Salguero-Gómez. I am a NERC Independent Research Fellow at The University of Sheffield (UK). I am also a honorary research fellow at the University of Queensland, a guest researcher of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (Germany), a visiting fellow at Trinity College Dublin (Ireland), and a member of Brezal Mediterráneo at Universidad de Cádiz (Spain)

My group researches in the following areas:

  - Strategies that allow desert organisms to cope with extreme stochastic conditions and how will climate change affect their future performance

  - Conditions that favor the evolution of senesce, and mechanisms by which senescence may be postponed or avoided

  - Main drivers of life history diversity

  - Strength of trade-offs (e.g. survival and reproduction) in modular and unitary organisms

  - Effect of anatomical constraints and physiological mechanisms onto population dynamics

My group's ultimate goal is to develop an integrative academic research plan where we use molecular, anatomic and physiological approaches to examine demographic aspects of an organism' life cycle through a combination angles including field and lab work, as well as ecological modeling and comparative biology
