Dr Rob Salguero-Gómez is an Associate Professor in Ecology at the Department of Zoology and Tutorial Fellow in Biology at Pembroke College. His research examines fundamental questions in life history evolution across the tree of life, drivers of ecological resilience, the evolution of ageing, and the development of novel techniques for biodiversity monitoring. He has produced ca. 100 peer-review publications in these topics, and published two books, The Evolution of Senescence across the Tree of Life (Cambridge University Press), and Demographic Methods across the Tree of Life (Oxford University Press)
Rob earned a BSc in Environmental Sciences from Cadiz University (Spain), a MSc in Resource Management from Kingston University (UK), and a PhD in Ecology, Evolution, and Biodiversity from Penn (USA). He holds affiliations with the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (Germany) and the University of Queensland (Australia). His research in macro-ecological drivers of life history evolution has been recognised internationally (e.g. Elton Award of the British Ecological Society), and his efforts towards open-access, reproducible pipelines in demographic research have recently been recognised with the Open Science award of the Spanish Terrestrial Ecology Association.
