Francisco Fernando Calvo Artavia


I grew up in San José, Costa Rica. I obtained the doctor of veterinary medicine degree from Universidad Nacional (UNA), Heredia, Costa Rica, in 2008. In 2010, I received the MSc in Veterinary Science with emphasis on Veterinary Epidemiology and Economics, from the Utrecht University, The Netherlands. In 2013, I obtained the PhD in Veterinary Epidemiology at the Department of Large Animal Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, with the entitled thesis “Evaluation of risk-based meat inspection for bovine cysticercosis and bovine tuberculosis in Denmark”. I have worked with issues on risk analysis, epidemiology control, and surveillance of bovine cysticercosis and tuberculosis. I have published 4 peer-reviewed articles in international scientific journals as first author, and has one as co-author published. I have experience at presenting his work in international conferences and scientific meetings. I have also worked in the industry, employed as an epidemiologist at Avia-GIS, Zoersel, Belgium. I provided support to the on-going research and consultancy projects, where I have seminars in 4 different languages.

Currently I am employed at the National Veterinary Institute of the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) as a PostDoc at the Section for Epidemiology. My work will be part of a project to underpin decisions towards a strategy to control livestock associated LA-MRSA and limit its spread to humans, where I am applying different methods on epidemiology, animal health economics, risk assessment and biostatistics.
