Most of our focus is on microbial communities, which we study with a deep and
sincere synergy between theory-driven and data-driven approaches.
By unveiling quantitative regularities in complex ecological data and by advancing the theoretical understanding of large interacting communities, we aim to determine how the ecological and evolutionary forces produce the stunning taxonomic and functional diversity that we observe on planet Earth.
Here is a more detailed description of our research interests.
We are part of the Quantitative Life Sciences section of the the Abdus Salam Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) located in Trieste, Italy.
