Javier Rojo appointed Associate Director for Biostatistics and Data Science

We are pleased to announce that Javier Rojo, Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, and a Dean’s Eminent Scholar at Indiana University, has agreed to serve as the Math Alliance Associate Director for Biostatistics and Data Science.  Professor Rojo is very well known in the quantitative science community for his outstanding research and efforts to enhance diversity in a broad range of STEM fields.  For many years he has been the Director of the RUSIS program, which was recognized with the 2014 AMS Programs that Make a Difference Award. He is the recipient of many awards, including the  2018 Etta Z. Falconer Award, the 2020 SACNAS Distinguished Scientist Award, and the 2010 ASA Don Owen Award. He has served the profession in several capacities, including a term as a Program Director at NSF.  As we expand and grow our relationship with biostatistics programs, computational life science programs, and industries (like pharmaceuticals and materials manufacturing), where biostatistics and data science play such a critical role, we are lucky to have someone with the breadth of knowledge and experience of Professor Rojo to provide us with advice and direction.  Welcome aboard!!
