Research interests and expertise

I study the dynamics of pathogenic agents at the interface of wildlife, livestock and poultry farms, and human populations. I earned my PhD in evolutionary biology in 2012 based on a three-year study on emerging diseases in Mediterranean wetlands in times of global change. I am currently developing a research project on the antibiotic resistant bacteria carried by wildlife. I am also currently studying the dynamics of fasciolosis in the Camargue, as well as trends in avian flu viruses in wetland networks. I also participate in many other projects, including a study on bird ticks, another one on different kinds of cancer in natural ecosystems, and one on monitoring toxoplasmosis.
