Biodata: 
I am Senior Lecturer in Microbiology at the Polytechnic School of Abomey-Calavi, University of Abomey-Calavi, in Benin. I am involved, through my work, in the fight against antimicrobial resistance in Africa and, as a scientist, my interests are linked to molecular microbiology, hygiene and public health. Scientific diplomacy is also a very important subject for my career, especially as a West African scientist. I have established many strong scientific networks around the world to make my country a better place to live without infectious diseases. I am a founding member of the Research Unit in Applied Microbiology and Pharmacology of natural substances, Research Laboratory in Applied Biology, Polytechnic School of Abomey-Calavi, University of Abomey-Calavi (www.e-urmapha.uac.bj). I am also the President of the Academy of Young Scientists of Benin and Country Ambassador of the American Society for Microbiology in Benin. Finally, I am a member of the Global Young Academy and a young affiliate of the World Academy of Sciences (TWAS). My academic career has been regularly enriched by participation in international workshops and symposia.
