Game-theoretic approach of modelling and estimating the impact of human migration behaviour on malaria endemicity in Sub-Saharan Africa


Migration, malaria, sub-Saharan Africa, modelling


India, Burkina Faso


The overarching goal of the project is to develop data-driven mathematical models and frameworks that account for ecological, epidemiological, and demographic principals related to human migration behaviour and spatiotemporal spread of malaria parasites, using mathematical (especially, game theory), statistical, and computational methods. The project aims to delineate the interaction of population dynamics with spatial and demographic structure and apply the models to real disease data (e.g., malaria in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA)).


We will establish mathematical models and estimate key determinants and parameters that account for human behaviour in migration and malaria endemicity, using disease (malaria) and demographic and socioeconomic database from countries in SSA.
