In 2012, Caroline Guerrisi was gratuated from the Master of Public Health of the EHESP school. After a year spent as an epidemiologist at Public Health France, she joined in 2013 the French sentinel network (réseau Sentinelles, from the UMR-S 1136 UPMC-Inserm research unit), where she currently works as an epidemiologist in charge of the national coordination. In 2016 she started a PhD under the supervision of Vittoria Colizza and Thomas Hanslik.
Caroline's current research work is in the surveillance and epidemiology of influenza-like-illness. She is the lead junior researcher of the participative online cohort study GrippeNet.fr based on the general population living in France. This crowdsourced project is the first ever implemented in France to monitor an infectious disease, usually done by healthcare professionals. GrippeNet.fr is part of a broader European program named Influenzanet. The PhD objectives are to analyze the signal obtained from the cohort to assess flu incidence and risk factors for influenza infection in the gerenral population. Caroline is also involved in the surveillance of other infectious diseases such as chickenpox or zoster.
