I lead the Infectious Disease Epidemiology and Analytics (IDEA) G5 Unit in the Department of Global Health at Institut Pasteur. Our team uses inter-disciplinary research tools spanning mathematical models, epidemiological cohort studies, and multiplex assays to investigate the epidemiology of infectious diseases.
A key goal is the development of multiplex assays and statistical tools for integrated surveillance of multiple pathogens. Despite this multi-pathogen focus, I have a special fondness for malaria and neglected tropical diseases, and my favourite parasite is definitely Plasmodium vivax. Like many other researchers, I have developed an interest in coronaviruses, and have made some small contributions in the development of novel serological assays.
