I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Swiss Federal Institute for Technology (ETH) in Zürich where I work with Sebastian Bonhoeffer as part of the Theoretical Biology Group. I am also a visiting scholar at the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy, a global health think tank based in Washington D.C, where my principal collaborator is Dr Ramanan Laxminarayan. Prior to this, I was a Fulbright Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton University in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary biology where I worked jointly with Prof Bryan Grenfell and Prof Simon Levin.

I completed my PhD at the Free University of Brussels (ULB) in 2013 where I worked at the Biological Control and Spatial Ecology Lab under the mentorship of Dr Marius Gilbert. In 2009, I started my PhD as a visitor at the Department of Zoology of the University of Oxford where I worked under the supervision of Prof Peter Gething as part of the Malaria Atlas Project. From 2011 to 2013, I was also a regular collaborator of Dr Michael Tildesley at the Warwick Mathematics Institute. Throughout my PhD I was supported by an aspirant grant from the Belgian Fund for Scientific Research (FNRS) as well as by the the Wiener-Anspach foundation. I originally obtained an MSc in environmental engineering and a BSc in biological engineering from the Free University of Brussels (ULB).
