David Stahl works on evolutionary and ecological origins of community assembly, stability, and efficiency informed by model microbial mutualism in co-cultures anchors many of our ongoing ENIGMA projects. As an investigator within MPC he leads the Community Evolution and Assembly campaign, and collaborates closely with environmental, biotechnology, and computational investigators. His primary activities are in the assembly, modeling, and evolution of simple microbial communities representative of environmental systems and associated processes. These activities contribute to the general ENIGMA goal of developing foundational knowledge necessary for predicting and modulating the activities of natural microbial communities.
