Erik Cobo

Associate professor

Statistics and Operations Research (Barcelona-Tech)



I first studied Medicine and then applied stats in Paris and Essex. I worked as teacher in a private managing school and as statistician in a pharmaceutical company. I'm now full time stats teacher at Barcelona-Tech. I love stats, as a way to show up uncertainty behind "science".
