Dr Salvador Herrando-Perez
  • Biography/ Background


    + I am a quantitative ecologist interested in the curation and analysis of biodiversity data. In terms of study taxa, habitat or ecological discipline, I am definitely a generalist.
    + I am proficient in R programming, multivariate ordination and compilation of biological databases. I have published 33 peer-reviewed papers, lectured 15 postgraduate courses on multivariate statistics and described 4 species new to science. I hold BSc in Biology/Zoology (1991), MPhil in marine ecology (1992-1996), PhD in population dynamics (2007-2012), and have completed three postdocs in ecophysiology (2013-2015), palaeoecology (2018-2020) and ecological monitoring (2021). Throughout, I have experienced 12 years of career interruptions mostly due to parenting responsabilities.
    + I write popular science on biodiversity and global change since 2011, resulting in more than 100 printed articles and blogs.
    + I am currently looking and applying for postdoc positions
    + Listen inteviews (in Spanish) here on biodiversity and extinctions (Radio 4: Spain's national public radio/TVE) and here on climate change in the TV program 'Qué Animal' (TV2: Spain's national public television/TVE)


    Below I show some aspects of ongoing research work.
