Dr. Anja Worrich
I am interested in the spatiotemporal dynamics of microbial communities and the principles that promote and control their assembly. I use synthetic microbial communities to understand spatial structuring and self-organization arising from the interplay of ecological interactions, dispersal and evolutionary processes. The quantitative analysis of spatial pattern formed by microbial consortia and the measurement of corresponding ecosystem functioning will provide mechanistic insights into the space-structure-function-relationship of microbial communities.
