Dr Rob Salguero-Gómez

Research Interests

Rob's research group (The SalGo Team) carries out research in the following areas:

  • Drivers of life history strategies
  • The evolution of and escape from senescence
  • Functional trait demography
  • Species distributions and habitat suitability
  • Life history oddities and gaps of knowledge
  • Conservation biology and population forecast
  • Comparative demography
  • Population modelling

Rob's ultimate goal is to develop an integrative academic research programme bringing together biochemical, 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.
