Claire graduated from the National Veterinary School of Toulouse (ENVT) in 2012. She completed her PhD in veterinary epidemiology at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) and The Pirbright Institute in 2016. After her PhD, Claire completed a 4-year postdoc fellowship at ENVT. In 2020, she joined ETH Zurich as a Marie-Curie Individual Post-Doctoral Research Fellow. Claire now serves as a research fellow at the National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE). She is also member of the expertise committee on Animal Health and Welfare (Anses, 2022-2026) and on Avian Influenza and Vaccination (EFSA, 2022-2024).
Claire’s research focuses on investigating the transmission dynamics of zoonotic and animal infectious diseases with the objective to improve our ability to predict and control future outbreaks. Her work combines pathogen genome sequences and case surveillance data to reconstruct epidemics and identify determinants of spread. Her research is highly inter-disciplinary, involving integrative approaches such as epidemiology, disease modelling, phylodynamics and ecology. She is currently involved in projects focusing on avian influenza, African swine fever, peste des petits ruminants and hepatitis E virus.
Créée en 1825, l’ENVT est la plus ancienne des grandes écoles toulousaines. Sans discontinuer, elle a servi la société en formant le tiers, puis le quart des vétérinaires français et s’honore d’avoir hébergé de grands noms de la profession, cliniciens, chercheurs, enseignants, industriels et décideurs.
