I started studying vector-borne diseases during my international master degree, called Emergence of Parasitic and Infectious Diseases, from the Université de Montpellier (France) and Universitas Gadjah Mada (Indonesia). It included a six-month internship in Malaria Unit of IPC, under Dr. Amélie Vantaux’s supervision, about human-vector contact patterns. As part of the International Center of Excellence in Malaria Research project (NIH), we developed a study called “Investigating human-malaria mosquito contact in time and space using GPS data loggers”, which gave us a better understanding of malaria transmission in rural Cambodia. I obtained a doctoral grant from Calmette and Yersin foundation which allowed me to pursue with a PhD proposal within the unit. My PhD project aims to study the effect of anthropization on malaria transmission in rural, low-income Cambodia using various approaches from GIS and spatial analyses to mosquito collection and population genetics of parasites. This three-year work started in December 2018 under the supervision of Dr. Amélie Vantaux and Dr. Benoit Witkowski.
