Postdoctoral Research Associate
My research focuses on the spatio-temporal dynamics of infectious diseases, in particular their complex interactions with climatic factors using various quantitative methods (spatial statistics, Bayesian hierarchical modeling, wavelet analyses). I am particularly interested in analyzing how this knowledge can help to improve control and prevention strategies. During my Ph.D. at Institut Pasteur I worked on the spatial epidemiology of meningococcal meningitis in Niger. The dynamics of bacterial meningitis worldwide is still my main research topic but I am also involved in collaborations on other diseases such as measles and encephalitis.
