About AIMS Research Center

AIMS Cameroon research center is located next to the building of AIMS center in Limbe, Cameroon. The center is currently run by Gisèle Mophou, a German Research Chair, supported by the Alexander von Humboldt and financed by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The areas of research include Partial Differential Equations, Fractional Partial Differential Equation and Control Theory. These topics are used to model and control environmental and health problems. The center is equipped with WIFI and has an appropriate ambience for research. All the researchers are cordially invited to visit AIMS. We have two PhD students who are now working on problems of pollution.
  • Lionel Landry DJOMEGNE NJOUKOUE, Université de Dschang, PhD student ( financed by DAAD).
  • Pasquini SOH FOTSING, Université de Dschang, AIMS alumnus, PhD student.
  • Romario FOKO TIOMELA, Université de Dschang, AIMS alumnus,  PhD student (financed by DAAD)
  • Cyrille KENNE, University of  Yaounde 1, PhD student.
  • Chilpéric Armel FOKO KUATE, University  of Yaounde 1, AIMS alumnus, Master student (financed by AIMS)
  • Maryse MOUTAMAL, University of  Douala, AIMS alumnus
  • Patrice NDAMBOMVE, University of Buea
We will also shortly welcome Jean Daniel Djida, a PostDoc researcher financed by DAAD, who will work on Fractional Partial Differential Equations on Network.

We welcome every researcher/academic who wants to present his/her work(s) at the center. We also extend our invitation to researchers to work on the topics developed by the center. For any information or to visit the research center, please write to us at gisele.mophou@aims-cameroon.org.
