Microbial Biogeography in Mediterranean Ecosystems
Here, the goal was to focus on how landscape heterogeneity influences soil microbial communities, and how plant-mediated selections modulate soil communities.
Collaboration in science is the act of working together with other researchers to conduct scientific research, share knowledge, and advance the field of science. This can include co-authoring scientific papers, working together on research projects, and sharing data and resources. Collaboration allows scientists to share their expertise, ideas, and perspectives, leading to more efficient and effective research. By pooling resources and sharing knowledge, collaboration helps to increase the impact and reach of scientific research. Additionally, collaboration in science allows for the participation of scientists from different backgrounds and disciplines, fostering diversity and inclusiveness in the scientific community. Collaboration in science is essential for advancing scientific knowledge and understanding, and it is a key aspect of modern scientific research.
Plant Holobiont Research
Here, the goal is to understand microbial colonisation patterns and highlight plant-microbe interactions
The Fynbos Mediterranean ecosystem
Here, the goal was to focus on how landscape heterogeneity influences soil microbial communities composition and highlight their assembly processes
The equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI)
Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) work is the effort to create a fair and just society by promoting and valuing diversity, challenging discrimination, and creating opportunities for historically marginalized groups. This work includes creating policies and practices that ensure fair treatment and access to opportunities for all individuals, regardless of their background. In the workplace, this may include efforts to diversify hiring practices, create an inclusive culture, and address systemic barriers to advancement. The ultimate goal of EDI work is to create a more equitable and inclusive society where everyone can thrive.
