Molecular and Eco-epidemiology of leptospirosis at the wildlife - cattle -human interface in New Zealand
My interest for wildlife, epidemiology and the study of zoonotic diseases came quite early in my vet studies.
I graduated as a vet in France in 2008 and worked as a team leader and project manager in the Wildlife Surveillance & Eco-Epidemiology Unit at the Anses - Nancy Laboratory for Rabies and Wildlife (French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety), where I gained a strong experience on wildlife diseases surveillance, network management and field work. I followed in parallel the MSc course in Veterinary Epidemiology & Public Health offered by the Royal Veterinary College in London (UK) by distance learning to strengthen my skills in epidemiology and statistics before beginning a PhD.
In Nancy I worked for the SAGIR Network, the French wildlife diseases surveillance network, and studied various species and zoonoses, with a focus on bats and rabies and on rodents and tick-borne diseases. My veterinary thesis was about leptospirosis in small carnivores in South-Western France. The project I’m doing in the Leptospirosis Research Group shared between the EpiCentre and the mEpiLab (Molecular Epidemiology and Public Health Laboratory) at Massey University is in continuity with this past research.
