A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

About

Lulla Opatowski is assistant professor in Mathematical Epidemiology (University of Versailles Saint Quentin – UVSQ).
Her main research interests are in mathematical modelling of infectious disease and statistical inference, with a particular interest in bacterial resistance to antimicrobials (including antibiotics and vaccines) and host-pathogen-pathogen interactions.

Her main projects include:

  • RESPIMOD: Modelling between-pathogen interactions within the respiratory tract, in particular interactions between Streptococcus pneumoniae and respiratory viruses.
  • CHART: characterisation of the transmission of Enterobacteriaceae resistant to 3rd generation cephalosporin in hospitalized neonates in Antananarivo Madagascar.
  • Microbiome: Building models to study the factors leading to the acquisition of antibiotic resistant bacteria and the development of gut microbiota in neonates.
  • Nosocomial infections: modelling analysis of different outbreaks of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in hospitals. This includes in particular the analysis of strains transmission from detailed proximity contact data and colonisation of S. aureus and Enterobacteriaceae (I-BIRD study, Individual Based Investigation of Resistant bacteria Dissemination in hospitals)
  • Study of multi-strain models and impact of vaccination (application to pneumococcus and HPV)
