Let´s talk about fungi!

Hi, my name is Carlos A. Aguilar-Trigueros. I have been trained as a community ecologist, having as organism of interest soil fungi.

My research program centers around three interrelated questions:

  • What are the drivers of community structure of the root microbiome?
  • What determines the evolution of fungi along the saprotrophy to symbiosis?
  • What can we learn from filamentous growth? Applications for Ecology and other fields

Although I have been trained mainly as an empirical ecologist, I am venturing in more theoretical and mathematical approaches to tackle those questions.

Currently, I am post-doctoral fellow at the group of Matthias Rillig in Berlin, as a member of the Berlin Brandenburg Institute of Advanced Biodiversity Research
