Research interests

The research interests of MiCHAEL are … small. We focus on aquatic ecology by investigating patterns and processes that underpin the distribution, abundance and diversity of microorganisms in diverse aquatic habitats. Some of our quests deal with the following:
* How do aquatic microbial communities assemble?
* Which members of the microbial trophic web are the key players in defining and maintaining community structure?
* How do these trophic links change over time?
* What is the role of spatial structure in regulating the community’s stability?
* How do abiotic parameters regulate ecosystem functioning of microbial processes?
* What types of association exist between prokaryotes and aquatic animals?


Taught classes
* Microbiology (3rd semester)
* Applications of aquatic microorganisms (7th semester; elective course)
* Microbial ecology of aquatic ecosystems (7th semester)
