I’m a mathematical modeler, primarily interested in epidemiology and ecology. So far, I’ve worked on issues regarding transmission dynamics of vector-borne diseases and population dynamics of insect vectors. I mostly use mechanistic modeling, at different scales : from countrywide risk mapping to within-host viral dynamics.
I’m also very keen on scientific outreach activities. I sometimes write columns or do interviews for Labo des Savoirs (weekly scientific radio program, in french). I talked about my own research in Soapbox Science, Skype a scientist and Nuit Blanche des Chercheurs (in french). I also volunteered in the organizing team of Pint of Science a few years ago.
