My research interest is related to arthropod-borne viruses, which are emerging and re-emerging causing public health issues in many countries. In particular, I am interested in mosquito-virus interactions in order to investigate different aspects related to mosquito-borne diseases. Using a combination of molecular biology and experimental approaches, my work focuses on understanding how virus evolution can lead to virus emergence, mosquito susceptibility and immune response to viral infections as well as the relationship between virus infection and fitness cost. Despite an increasing toolbox to fight arboviral diseases, basic knowledge of local mosquito populations and efficiency of vector control tools is missing in order to perform targeted and efficient intervention. Therefore, I have recently developed an interest in applied research to reduce the risk of disease introduction and/or burden.
