I am a Reader in Data Science in the Department of Statistics at the University of Warwick and Turing Fellow of The Alan Turing Institute, which is the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence.

I obtained a BSc in Statistics from the Athens University of Economics and Business in 2004. I was then awarded a PhD in Statistics in 2007 from the Department of Statistics at the University of Warwick with a thesis titled “Bias reduction in exponential family nonlinear models”, where I subsequently held an appointment as a CRiSM Research Fellow until 2010. In September 2010, I joined the Department of Statistical Science at University College London as a Lecturer (equivalent to Assistant Professor), and I got promoted to Senior Lecturer (equivalent to Associate Professor) in 2015. I moved back to University of Warwick as a Reader in Data Science in January 2018 and I hold a position as an Honorary Reader in Statistics at University College London.

In these pages, you will find details about my research interests and activity, work on scientific software development, and my supervision, teaching, editorial and other activities.

Collaboration platforms and social media

I use GitHub for most of my authoring and software development work and for collaborating. I also use Twitter, mainly for keeping up-to-date with what people and organisations I follow think or do, and sometimes for (shameless) self-advertising.

Feel free to browse my GitHub repositories and my Twitter feed, and to follow me on either.
