Entered in the LIRIMA in January 2015, this team federates researchers from LERSTAD (Laboratoire d’Etudes et de Recherches en Statistiques et Développement, Université Gaston Berger), on the one part, and Mistis (Inria Grenoble Rhône-Alpes) on the other part. This project consolidates the existing collaborations between these two Laboratories.

The team also involves statisticians from EQUIPPE laboratory (Economie QUantitative Intégration Politiques Publiques Econométrie, Université de Lille) and associated members of Modal (Inria Lille Nord-Europe) as well as an epidemiologist from IRD (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement) at Dakar.

The following two research themes are developed : (1) Spatial extremes with application to management of extreme risks ; (2) Classification with application to global epidemiology.
