I am a researcher at the IRD. My research aims to provide scientific evidence for the development of new public health strategies. I am interested in the study of the ecology and evolution of infectious diseases through different empirical, experimental and conceptual approaches. Currently, I am focusing on the study of flaviviruses through the development of research projects in Mexico, in order to study their evolutionary dynamics in complex multi-reservoir/multi-vector systems, using different approaches (field study, experimental infection and advanced phylogenetic analysis). I have collaborated in the writing of 31 scientific articles (17 first/last author) in journals of various disciplines (e.g. STOTEN, PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases, Ecology Letters, Evolutionary Applications or Evolution among others).

Mi área de investigación abarca aspectos biológicos, ecológicos, epidemiológicos y antropológicos de las enfermedades transmitidas por vectores en la península de Yucatán, con un enfoque particular en la enfermedad de Chagas, el dengue y las enfermedades transmitidas
por garrapatas. Mi trabajo actual se centra en la identificación de factores de riesgo para la enfermedad rickettsial y otras enfermedades transmitidas por vectores (dengue y enfermedad de Chagas) en comunidades mayas, así como en comprender las actitudes y percepciones de la comunidad sobre estas enfermedades. Además, me he centrado en el conocimiento de los médicos sobre estos mismos sistemas de enfermedades, y más recientemente, he dirigido la atención en las comunidades mayas hacia enfermedades emergentes como la COVID-19. En el marco de estas actividades, suelo organizar talleres de Educación para la Salud y encuestas comunitarias.

I am interested in host-pathogen interactions and the relationship between loss of biodiversity and increased transmission of pathogens of zoonotic origin. I use dynamic mathematical models to model the mechanisms involved in the transmission of pathogens, to understand their evolution and the co-evolution of the different modeled variables. I seek that the models developed allow a better understanding of complex biological systems and that they participate in the development of strategies for the prevention and control of pathogens, in order to improve human, animal and ecosystem health. I am currently working on the West Nile virus in Yucatan (Mexico) through the project PRONAII.

Mis intereses de investigación se centran en cómo las interacciones intra-individuo entre un hospedero y sus parásitos se traducen en dinámicas poblacionales, así como en las implicaciones de fenómenos a gran escala (cambio climático, modificación del paisaje) como factores que conllevan a cambios de hospedero y la emergencia de nuevas enfermedades en sistemas de parásitos multi-hospedero. Para mi tema de investigación doctoral, uso a Bartonella spp en roedores silvestres como modelo de estudio para entender la dinámica de transmisión en sistemas multi-hospedero. También me interesa la visualización de datos como herramienta para construir narrativas que mejoren la accesibilidad de los resultados de trabajos científicos y su integración en el desarrollo de políticas públicas desde la perspectiva de Una Salud.

Soy estudiante de doctorado en Ciencias de la producción y de la salud animal, FMVZ-UNAM. Después de realizar mis estudios de maestría sobre las preferencias hematófagas de los mosquitos en diferentes tipos de uso de suelo, y encontrar que se alimentaron en todos los sitios incluyendo los conservados de animales domésticos, principalmente de bovinos, me surgió un gran interés por estudiar el papel que desempeñan los animales domésticos en los ciclos de transmisión de enfermedades arbovirales. Durante mis estudios de doctorado he ahondado en la gran relevancia que tiene el estudio de las interacciones que la domesticación ha provocado entre humanos, animales domésticos y silvestres en la salud pública y animal.

As a veterinarian with a master’s degree in infectious diseases and health, I am particularly interested in the ecology of vector-borne diseases. I have had the opportunity to work on different invertebrate biological models (Argasidae, Ixodidae, Streblidae, Culicidae), as well as their vertebrate hosts in different types of habitats. During my PhD, I am studying the feeding preferences of different species of mosquito vectors in order to determine the intrinsic mechanisms that shape the circulation of certain viruses in different types of habitats.

I am a veterinarian by training, graduated from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Zootechnics at the Autonomous University of Yucatan. During my postgraduate studies, I focused on the molecular detection of arboviruses (Alphavirus, Flavivirus, and Orthobunyavirus) in bats, farm animals, and mosquitoes. Animal production units or farms have generally been my study sites, as I consider them appropriate places for the study of arboviruses and other zoonotic pathogens due to the interactions between vectors, domestic animals, wildlife, and humans. Additionally, I have had the opportunity to participate in various projects in the Arbovirology Laboratory at the CIR – Dr. Hideyo Noguchi, aimed at studying arboviruses in vulnerable communities in the state of Yucatan.
