My activity

My research focuses on the ecological and biological mechanisms underlying the emergence of zoonotic pathogens. I am interested in the characterization of pathogens circulating in the aquatic environment, their genetic diversity, the selection of infectious strains and their transmission between animals and humans in a context of global changes, such as deforestation, urbanization, climate change, aquaculture intensification and biological invasions. Also, I am developing OneHealth/EcoHealth approaches to better understand the links between biodiversity and health but also the role of poverty on the risk of emergence of infectious diseases in humans. To do this, I use various approaches and tools such as environmental DNA (eDNA), genomics and disease biogeography.
