Marius Gilbert F.R.S.-FNRS Senior Research associate

Marius Gilbert graduated in Agricultural and Applied Biological Sciences at the Université Libre de Bruxelles in 1995. He was then a visiting researcher for two years at the department of Zoology, University of Oxford and did a PhD on in insect pest ecology at the ULB in 2001. He then worked on the invasion ecology of several insect pests before moving the focus of his research toward to the spatial epidemiology of animal diseases. In 2006, he was awarded a permanent academic position with the Belgian FNRS. Since 2015, he’s FNRS Senior Research associates and leads the Spatial epidemiology Lab. (SpELL).

Research interest

Marius has broad interests in the spatial epidemiology of animal diseases and invasive species. An overarching theme is the attempt to better understand how changes in agriculture have transformed ecosystems and affected the conditions of emergence, spread and persistence of pathogens and invasive species. His main area of expertise includes the epidemiology of avian influenza, global changes in livestock production systems, and livestock distribution models.
