Research Projects



A project, called GEMDOTIS, about the use of Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) against Bactrocera dorsalis, a
fruit fly, in Réunion island, has been funded by the program Ecophyto 2018 (France). It started in June 2019. Also, another SIT project, CERATIS, against Ceratitis capitata, another fruit fly, in Corsica, is also funded by the program Ecophyto 2019 (France) and will start in January 2020. Yves Dumont is involved in both projects. The project Semilinear and quasilinear systems in fluid mechanics forced by space‐time white noise has been awarded a Research in Paris grant by the Institut Henri Poincare, Paris, France. It is a joint application of Paul Razafimandimby with Zdzislaw Brzezniak and Kazuo Yamazaki
