Nikos Ignatiadis

Hi! I am Nikos, a final-year PhD student in Stanford's Statistics department, advised by Stefan Wager. In July 2023, I will be joining the University of Chicago as an assistant professor in the Department of Statistics and the Data Science Institute, after spending a year as a postdoc at Columbia Statistics.

I am interested in empirical Bayes methods, causal inference, multiple testing and statistical analysis in the presence of contextual side information, and my research often draws upon nonparametrics and convex optimization.

Before coming to Stanford, I received degrees in Mathematics (BSc), Molecular Biotechnology (BSc) and Scientific Computing (MSc) at the University of Heidelberg in Germany. There, I worked with Wolfgang Huber at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory.

You can find me on Github, Twitter and Google Scholar or email me at A copy of my CV is available here.
