This page is intended to present the ongoing results of the COVID-19 related research ongoing at the Applied Mathematics Department of the IME-USP. These studies are mainly done in collaboration with InLoco Company (www.inloco.com.br)

Main ongoing research:


Social distancing statistics

Reports on a social distancing measure based on mobile geolocation

(Clicking on the state will show a new map where you can see social distancing statistics – Portuguese only)

Please check the Portuguese version (Brazil flag) for full details on methodology and interpretation
