Dr. Cyril Caminade

Dr Cyril Caminade is a research associate working at the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of Liverpool.


He obtained his PhD in climatology (climate change in sub-saharan Africa) at the Université Paul Sabatier in Toulouse in 2006. He then started a post-doctoral position at the University of Liverpool in 2008 and has developed and strengthened several collaborations within the University (with the veterinary school) in order to model and map the risk of several key vector born diseases over Europe and Africa. This includes various animal diseases of blue tongue and liver fluke in Europe, and key human diseases including Rift Valley Fever and malaria in Africa.


Several methods have been developed to map the disease risk changes for the future, using climate scenario simulations. This has produced several publications (McIntyre et al., 2010, Guis et al., 2012, Caminade et al., 2011, Caminade et al., 2012, Impoinvil et al., 2011).


Dr Caminade also collaborated with human geographers working at the University of Liverpool (Assan et al., 2009), and has taken part in a climate scientist / NGOs & stakeholders exchange within the Humanitarian Futures Programme framework (Visman et al., 2010).
