Distinction takes associate professor of Mathematics to Colombia in 2023 to further statistical analysis of health-related data
Sandra Milena Hurtado Rúa, Ph.D. is the latest member of the Cleveland State University faculty to be named a Fulbright Scholar, a distinction which will take her to Colombia next year. An associate professor in the department of Mathematics and Statistics at CSU, she specializes in Statistics and Biostatistics.
Dr. Hurtado Rúa’s research includes Bayesian Inference and statistical analysis of MRI data in the context of multiple sclerosis research, meta-analysis studies, and modeling of survival and cancer cure rates. Her work has been included in numerous collaborative studies and could ultimately have direct benefits for clinical care.
