Introduction
Holder of a PhD in Microbiology at the University of Abomey-Calavi in 2016, my research work focuses on foodborne infections and zoonoses, antimicrobial resistance and biocontrol of multidrug-resistant pathogens by probiotics and bacteriophages. Currently I'm working on project " Potential severity of antimicrobial resistance in context of COVID-19 pandemic and phage-assisted bio-control : one health approach in Benin and Pakistan ".
