We are interested in a universal feature of nearly every high-density surface-attached microbial community; spatial self-organization. Different cell-types are not arranged randomly across space. Instead, they arrange themselves non-randomly and form spatial patterns. We want to understand the causes and consequences of spatial self-organization. We then want to leverage the knowledge gained to rationally manipulate spatial self-organization to achieve biotechnological and public health objectives.
