I graduate from the University of Maisons-Alfort (Paris, France) as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) in 2009 and defended my DVM thesis on the epidemiology of H5N1HP in Africa, for which I obtained a silver medal of honour.  I then specialised in Public Health and infectious risk, completing a master with the institute Pasteur and the CNAM (Conservatoire National des Arts et Metiers) in 2010-2011, which gave me the opportunity to run a six-months project on Foot-and-Mouth disease's prevention and control in Cambodia with the CIRAD (Agricultural Research for Development).  I then spent two years in the French Food Safety Agency (ANSES) (2011-2012), coordinating an EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) project on animal health risk assessment data specification with Belgian (Lieges University) and Netherland (Central of Veterinary Institute).  I further spent a year in the Food General Directorate of the French Ministry of Agriculture, working with the European Commission on the modernisation of the Poultry meat inspection.  In 2013, I was awarded three years funding through the EU Vice Chancellor Scholarship for Research Excellence to complete a full time PhD in the University of Nottingham. 

Degree Registration:

DVM, MPH, due for completion in October 2016.

School Research Theme:

Research Topic:

Worm control in cattle.

Summary of Research:

This PhD uses a multidisciplinary approach incorporating veterinary epidemiology and sociology to work towards an improved understanding of helminth control in cattle in the UK.  It will specifically focus on herd control practices towards Ostertagia ostertagi, rumen and liver flukes, in all-year round calving dairy heifers and beef cattle at slaughter, and involves the participation of the Quality Milk and Management System (QMMS) laboratory.
