Nikos Ignatiadis

Hi! I am Nikos. I have recently completed my PhD 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.

Previously, 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.
