About Davide Ciccarese
Davide Ciccarese is a postdoctoral associate at MIT, Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (EAPS). His research interest aims to understand microbial communities' eco-evolutionary dynamics at the micro-scale and their influence on macro-scale biogeochemical cycles. He uses a bottom-up approach within the framework of synthetic ecology using image analysis and microfluidic devices. He is currently studying the ecology of microbial aggregates and their contribution to large-scale processes focusing on carbon export and the nitrogen cycle in the Ocean.
