She completed her PhD (IWT scholarship) and Master in Veterinary Science at Ghent University. After holding a postdoc position at KULeuven, she joined the team of professor Dorny at ITM in March 2015. During her PhD research, she has investigated trace element deficiencies in Ethiopian zebu (Bos indicus) cattle and their effect on veterinary and public health. More recently, her work focusses on zoonotic helminth and foodborne infections of veterinary and public health importance (e.g., taeniasis/cysticercosis, echinococcosis). She’s involved in the epidemiology, diagnostics and data management/analysis of several projects in the South (e.g. Burkina Faso, DR Congo, South Africa, Ethiopia, Vietnam).

She is a team member of the IUC-JU project of VLIR-UOS and has organized various workshops and information sessions during her missions abroad. She has supervised several students (MSc/PhD) during their thesis work and research.
