My activity

As an immuno-ecologist, I am interested in host-parasite interactions and the role of immunocompetence in the evolution of mammalian life-history traits.
More specifically, I am working on : (i) the identification and development of easy-to-use techniques to help characterise the immune system in the wild and in captivity, (ii) the morphological and molecular characterisation of potentially zoonotic parasites, (iii) the study of the molecular mechanisms of the immune response, and finally, (iv) the study of the links between the various determinants of immunocompetence.
My current work involves studying individual variations in immunity and patterns of co-infection (in particular SIV and gastrointestinal parasites) in wild and semi-free-ranging mandrills.
