AIMS-Sénégal now hosts a vibrant research centre, staffed by a combination of eminent and emerging African researchers who will interact with the international community, the student body and the Senegalese scientific community in their academic pursuits. This research centre will stimulate research activities in Sénégal and help to keep African scientists in Africa. With this view, AIMS-Sénégal is an opportunity for Sénégal to build an international centre of excellence in mathematics and enable Sénégal to take a leadership position in African science. Moreover, through its facilities, academic partnerships, scientific output, reputation and pan-African make-up, AIMS-Sénégal has the potential to bring Sénégal to the forefront of African science.
Based in MBour, the AIMS-Sénégal campus is located in a seaside nature reserve with modern eco-architecture, inspiring views and space for many students and researchers, providing them with all the infrastructure and facilities required to be an international centre of excellence.
The research program at AIMS-Sénégal covers pure and applied fileds in mathematical sciences. Currently the research directions are: Noncommutative Algebra, Cryptography, Number theory, Partial Differential Equations and Differential Geometry while future research programs will be oriented to Mathematical modelling applied to fishery.
The research program at AIMS-Senegal is supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research via the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). They act as partners in the project to promote networking between AIMS Senegal and German universities as well as with other AIMS centers. (for more details)
