Team member
WP3 leader
He obtained his PhD in Medical Entomology in 2011, having studied Environmental Sciences (Medical Entomology) to BSc and then MSc level. He was named head of Benin’s National Viral Haemorrhagic Fevers Laboratory in 2015, and Senior Lecturer in the Zoology and Genetics Department of the University of Abomey-Calavi the same year. Since 2011 he has held a position as Researcher at the Cotonou Centre for Entomological Research (CREC). He has developed expertise in a range of molecular biological and biochemical techniques that he has applied to the diagnosis of multiple viral infections (Lassa, Ebola, Dengue, Zika, Chikungunya), such that the National Laboratory can now routinely diagnose those infections using PCR-based procedures. A well-established collaborative partnership with colleagues at the Bernhard Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine (BNITM) in Hamburg, Germany has ensured that the necessary safety and quality standards are strictly adhered to.
