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
