I graduated from the National Veterinary School of Nantes (Oniris) in 2003. After working as a general practitioner at mixed practices in Western France for almost 4 years, I undertook a PhD (2009-2011) at Oniris on the assessment of control for bovine digital dermatitis. I then moved to the Institute of Research for Development (CIRAD, Montpellier, France) and UC Davis (California, US), to analyse the movement of pigs in different European systems, and thus improve surveillance and control programs of infectious diseases, including African Swine Fever (supervision: Pr Eric Etter et Pr Beatriz Martinez-Lopez). In 2015, I undertook a residency program at Oniris under the supervision of Pr. Raphaël Gatteo and became a specialist in bovine herd health management (ECBHM) in 2019. Since 2018, I’m a lecturer in cattle medicine at Oniris. I‘m involved in teaching medicine and surgery in cattle, clinical service for animal and herds referred by veterinary practitioners, and research. My main research interest is on the evaluation of innovating measures to better detect and control endemic diseases, with a focus on cattle lameness, through field-based epidemiological studies.
