Omar De la Cruz C., Ph.D.


Modern science is producing massive, high-dimensional, heterogeneous data sets; new statistical techniques provide ways to tackle these challenges. It's a great time to be a statistician!
My interests are Statistical Genetics, geometric approaches to data analysis, high dimensional data, and kernel methods.
Previously, my field of work in Pure Mathematics was Set Theory.


I am currently teaching Biostatistics (Stats 141 / Bio 141). I have taught other courses (graduate and undergraduate) in Statistics, as well as in Mathematics.
The course links to the right require logging in to the Stanford Coursework system.

Computational Biology Seminar

The subject of this seminar is computational biology in a wide sense, including (but not limited to) bioinformatics, statistical genetics and genomics, and modeling of biological systems at all levels. We usually meet at the Clark Center (Bio-X).
If you are interested in participating, contact me.


My family and I enjoy hiking, travel, movies, music, and nice food. The usual stuff!
