Professional experience

Lison is a French researcher specialized in Medical Entomology, with a particular focus on Vector-Pathogen Interactions. She holds a BSc degree in Biology & Ecology from the University of Quebec at Trois Rivières (Canada) and an MSc degree in Medical Entomology from the University of Montpellier (France) and the University Alassane Ouattara (Ivory Coast). 
Throughout the early stages of her career, she had the opportunity to explore diverse countries and cultures, while also expanding her expertise in various domains, notably in vector ecology and vector control. During her MSc degree, she carried out experimental research aimed at establishing a biological control method against the tsetse fly, for implementation in Senegal. Then, during her Ph.D. entitled "PhlebovirusLeishmania, and sand flies: interactions and impacts on the biology and transmission of these pathogens", carried out at Montpellier University, she deepened her understanding of infectious diseases transmission. In particular, this study provided the first description of the infection dynamics of a Phlebovirus (Toscana virus) in sand flies under controlled conditions and improved fundamental insights into the biology of vector-pathogen interactions in the sand fly-Phlebovirus-Leishmania model.
