Scientific summary

I started research in Biomathematics during my master which has dealt on HIV infection, especially modeling the incubation period of AIDS. My PhD and my postdoctoral led me to focus on modeling of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Since completing my PhD, I conducted several modeling projects on HCV in France, the United States and Egypt, and I also developed projects on HIV and other infectious diseases like tuberculosis and Influenza A (H1N1). I am now a researcher at Inserm (U995, University Lille Nord de France, Lille). I'm still working on modeling projects of infectious diseases, mainly on HCV, but also modeliing projects on liver diseases, such as hepatocellular carcinomal, and finally future modeling projects on inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD).
