Olivier TELLE
Head Researcher
Territorial Dyanamics


Olivier Telle is a researcher at CNRS currently affiliated with CSH. The general aim of his research is to better understand how socio-spatial dynamics of cities are connected to epidemic diffusion, in India (Delhi), as well as Asia (Vientiane, Bangkok). By integrating human mobility, socio-economic, infra-structural and governance disparities, Olivier aims to reduce disease diffusion within and between cities. He is particularly interested in reconnecting sanitation –in his broad meaning- with urban health. Before being recruited by CNRS, Olivier conducted a 3 years postdoc at Institut Pasteur Paris (Functional Genetic of Infectious Diseases).
