Arnaud Rault

01/04/2013 - 30/09/2014

INRA, Oniris, BioEpAR (MODEC), Nantes

Now working as part as WP3 at BioEpAR.

Junior economist (post-doctoral fellow). Involved in modelling the behaviour of farmers with respect to animal health risk in herds. Research objectives are:

  •  to analyse the economic issues influencing the participation/non participation of farmers in disease control strategies.
  •   to bring economic components in an epidemiological model in order to reflect the impact individual decisions on disease dynamics

Jordi Ferrer Savall

Funded by ANR

Researcher in computational epidemiology. The aim of his work is to model Salmonella contamination of pig carcasses after slaughter, taking into account real livestock outputs, transport, control measures and their costs of the swine and pork industries in Bretagne, France.


Simon Nusinovici

01/06/2012 - 15/08/2014

INRA, Oniris, BioEpAR (PVP), Nantes

Supervised by F. Beaudeau

Priscilla Cailly

01/12/2011 - 31/05/2013

ANSES, EBEP, Ploufragan

Supervised by N. Rose

Funded by ANSES

Dr. P. Cailly elaborates a model of the spread of the Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome virus (PRRSv) in a pig herd (WP1).


Patricia Renson

15/09/2012 - 14/03/2014

Anses, UVIP, Ploufragan

Supervised by O. Bourry and N. Rose

Funded by ANR

Generates biological data from animal experiments to model host immune response to Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSV) infection, as well as to model PRRSV spread in a pig herd.
