Profile of the Expert
FR
I obtained a PhD in Agronomic Sciences and Biological Engineering from Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech, University of Liège in 2009. In 2011, I have joined the College of Agriculture-Mateur, University of Carthage as an Associate professor where I teache Microbiology, and Microbial Ecology. In 2013, I received a Fulbright Visiting Scholar grant to visit the Poultry and Microbiological Safety Research Unit of the ARS, USDA where I conducted for 6 months further research on the Ecology of Commensal Human Food-Borne Bacterial Pathogens in the Chicken". In 2016, I obtained the Professional Certification in Biorisk Management of the International Federation of Biosafety Associations. Currently, I am working on developing new strategies to reduce human food-borne bacterial pathogens in livestock animals, and assessing the prevalence and impacts of genetically engineered feedstuffs on performance and health of animals. I am also involved in the implementation of the Biosafety framework in Tunisia.
