Seminars organization

Leadership within the Scientific Community

Stéphane Girard is at the head of the associated team SIMERGE (Statistical Inference for the Management of Extreme Risks and Global Epidemiology) created in 2015 between mistis and LERSTAD (Université Gaston Berger, Saint-Louis, Sénégal). The team is part of the LIRIMA (Laboratoire International de Recherche en Informatique et Mathématiques Appliquées),

Scientific Expertise

Stéphane Girard was a member of the HCERES committee for the evaluation of the SAMM laboratory, Université Paris 1. He also was a referee for the NWO, Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research.
