    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    My professional experience and personal involvement are on the broad knowledge of insects vector of diseases and on the development and implementation of new vector control strategies in particular against the vectors of arboviruses, malaria and leishmaniasis, as well as the development of capacity in those fields. My first position was as an assistant at the Polytechnic School of Zurich to work on the biological control of insects vectors and pests. Then, , I joined the International Network of the Pasteur Institutes for more than 20 years to work in/for different countries affected by Tropical Diseases and Poverty. I had the opportunity to participate and lead several research projects on different vectors acquiring experience and knowledge on both the vector biology and the project management in different ecological, socio-economics and political environments. The research programs I am involved in are also contributing actively to regional and country efforts to develop sustainable local research capacity, develop successful partnerships and collaborations. Since 2014, I am leading the Vector Environment and Society Unit from the WHO Special Programme for research and training on Tropical Diseases (TDR). Our activities are looking at the broader issues that affect the transmission of pathogens through vectors. An interdisciplinary approach is used, including water, agriculture, meteorology, and sociology and the work with community members to develop new approaches and strong capacity building to improve the health of the most vulnerable.
