Lorraine is an early-career French veterinary epidemiologist and Ph.D. candidate with a strong interest in interdisciplinary research and collaborative approaches to animal health management.
Lorraine graduated from the Veterinary School of Lyon and obtained a MSc in One Health from the Royal Veterinary College in London in 2019. As part of her MSc project, she worked with the ILRI on the Metropolitan Mosquito project in Vietnam where she conducted Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices studies on vector-borne diseases and explore the risk associated with urban livestock keeping.
She then joined the One Health Poultry Hub where she collaborated in the development and coordination of socio-epidemiological studies to assess and mitigate the risk of zoonotic poultry diseases in South-East Asia. While maintaining her involvement in this project, she moved to the Centre for Applied Research and Policy Advice at City University of Hong Kong in 2021, where she contributed to teaching and workshops for veterinary students and animal health stakeholders.
In 2022, she came back to Europe to start a Ph.D. at Ausvet Europe within the TRANSFORM Project, focusing on the development of decision-support data tools to improve the management of poultry health in Vietnam and Indonesia. She was involved in different aspects of the project, including the design and implementation of needs and capabilities studies, field data collection and qualitative analysis. This provided many opportunities to develop her skills and collaborate with a diversity of stakeholders from the private sector, governments, and academia, which confirmed her enthusiasm for transdisciplinary and applied research.
Lorraine joined Ausvet Europe in March 2022.
