My research activities are focusing on the evolutionary biology of host-parasite interactions with a focus on vector-borne diseases and public health issues. To do so I am merging lab, field and theoretical approaches. I am also interested in science communication and the relationships between scientists, their object of study and the publics, especially when it concerns innovation and technology in entomology, pest control and public health. More recently I have also starting working on the links between health and biodiversity with a focus on South-East Asia.
