- Higher Education Institution/University
I am an evolutionary biologist working on host-parasite interactions with a focus on vector-borne diseases and public health issues. To do so I am merging lab, field and theoretical approaches. I am also interested in science communication and the relationships between scientists, their object of study and the publics, especially when it concerns innovations and technology. Apart from my academic activities, I am also working with MSF Spain on innovation for malaria vector control.
Given the importance of linking VBD and the human habitat and my interest for this topic, I am willing to join the BOVA network.
I am working at the IRD a French public research institution operating under the joint authority of the French Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Innovation and the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs. Via its network and presence in fifty or so countries, it takes an original approach to research, expertise, training, and knowledge-sharing to the benefit of countries and regions that make science and innovation key drivers in their development.
