Dr Elvina Viennet
Elvina’s interests lie in infectious disease, especially in vector-borne diseases. She works to understand virus transmission, to help predict new outbreaks and keep the blood supply safe.
Elvina completed her PhD in Medical and Veterinary Entomology and Bio-Ecology from Cirad-CMAEE, Montpellier (Fr) in 2011. Her thesis was about the contact between hosts and Culicoides species in the Palaearctic region, and the implications in bluetongue virus transmission.
