The work of GRIMCAPE team was subdivided in four main areas :

  1. Modeling and Analysis of structured epidemiological models (age-structured / or spatial and / or epidemiological status);
  2. Modeling and Analysis of population dynamics;
  3. Identification / parameter estimation and variables;
  4. Modeling in ecology (Size Structured Tree-Grass Competition Model for Savanna Ecosystems). 

This work has lead to many fields of application, the most important are :

  • forest dynamics and forest-savanna interactions,
  • spread of vector-borne diseases,
  • the metapopulation models considering migration and spatial heterogeneity in cases of malaria and tuberculosis,
  • and the transmission dynamics of infectious diseases that can account for the effects of differentiation susceptibility or infectivity of drug resistance and exogenous reinfection (TB, AIDS, meningitis, HBV …).
