Overall Objectives

BIGS is a joint team of Inria, CNRS and Universit√© Lorraine, via the Institut √Člie Cartan, UMR 7502 CNRS-UL laboratory in mathematics, of which Inria is a strong partner. One member of BIGS, T. Bastogne, comes from the Research Center of Automatic Control of Nancy (CRAN), with which BIGS has strong relations in the domain "Health-Biology-Signal". Our research is mainly focused on stochastic modeling and statistics but also aiming at a better understanding of biological systems. BIGS involves applied mathematicians whose research interests mainly concern probability and statistics. More precisely, our attention is directed on (1) stochastic modeling, (2) estimation and control for stochastic processes, (3) algorithms and estimation for graph data and (4) regression and machine learning. The main objective of BIGS is to exploit these skills in applied mathematics to provide a better understanding of issues arising in life sciences, with a special focus on (1) tumor growth, (2) photodynamic therapy, (3) population studies of genomic data and of micro-organisms genomics, (4) epidemiology and e-health.
