Renaud is a Medical Entomologist with experience of conducting malaria vector control studies in communities. He held technical and advisory positions with the US PMI VectorLink Project in Burundi and UNDP/Global Fund in Djibouti prior to joining LSHTM in 2018. In his current role, he coordinates implementation of IVCC-Sponsored Studies evaluating the efficacy of novel vector control products (mainly long-lasting insecticidal net and indoor residual spraying) at CREC/LSHTM Collaborative Research Programme in Cotonou, Benin.

Renaud obtained an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering (First-class honours) before completing his MSc and PhD in medical entomology, funded by the Benin Government’s Excellence Programme.
