Welcome to my professional website.

👋 My research interests concern vector-borne diseases. More specifically, I am studying dynamic traits related to mosquito vectors biology and interaction dynamics between mosquito-borne pathogens and their hosts. I am also interested to elucidate if a trait related to vector-borne diseases has a genetic basis, and if it does, discover the genetic factors underlying it. I am also developing innovative entomological surveillance strategies inspired from environmental DNA (eDNA) sequencing and molecular xenomonitoring (MX) that are adapted to low infection rates in mosquito populations that typically occur in low or non-endemic areas. In other words…how to use mosquito 🚽 in the wild to collect their 💩 to detect mosquito-borne pathogen circulation.

I am open to explore within and beyond these frontiers through collaborations 😃 🚀

Areas of interest include:

  • Assess dynamic processes related to vector competence or other mosquito-related traits
  • Determine the genetic basis of mosquito vectors related phenotypes
  • Develop innovative mosquito-borne diseases surveillance
  • A lot of other cool stuffs applied to vector borne diseases that can involve genetic, genomic, dynamic data and fancy data visualisation :)
