Diego Salgueiro visits the James Cook University to develop the second chapter of his PhD research
Diego Salgueiro, PhD student of Future Oceans Lab, is studying the adaptation of small-scale fisheries (SSF) to climate change, applying a socio-ecological perspective with a network approach to better understand how the individual and collective attributes can enable or constrain the adaptation and transformation of fisheries under different climate change scenarios.
This motivation drove him to Townsville (Australia) where the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies does a cutting-edge research in marine and people-ecosystems science. Diego is visiting the Centre for Coral Reef Studies from April to July 2019 to work with Michele Barnes, expert in network approach and social science. During his stay, he will be learning the social perspective and network analysis as well as different techniques to apply them on his SSF case studies. These methods can provide novel insights and new conceptualizations of climate change consequences in social-ecological domains.
From FOL we thank Barnes lab, Social Dynamics and the Environment for hosting Diego and Xunta de Galicia (Galician Government) for funding his research stay there through his PhD fellowship.
