Ahmed Abdelfattah

Postdoctoral researcher

My research mainly focuses on microbial communities associated to plants. I am interested to understand their community structure, function, and interaction with their host and the environment. Previously, I studied the fungal communities of several agricultural crops, including olive, citrus, strawberries, grape, wheat, and apples. Currently, I am studying the microbial community of oak trees with a special focus on their spatial distribution within and among trees, mechanisms of microbial inheritance, acquisition and transmission from the environment.
