Profile

me

My logo (e.g. in GitHub) isIK_github_logo; see this blog post about how I generated it in R.

I am a Professor of Statistics 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, and I got promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2015. I moved back to University of Warwick as a Reader in Data Science in January 2018, and I got promoted to Professor in August 2021. Between Jan 2022 and Mar 2023, I was the Turing University Lead for the University of Warwick, and since Arp 2023 I am the Turing Liaison (academic) at the University of Warwick.

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

Working with me

I am actively looking for PhD students and PostDoc researchers with strong mathematical, statistical or computational backgrounds to join my group. If you are interested in working with me, please take a look at my research pages to find out more about my current research interests. Please also take a look at my supervision page to see current and former PhD students and PostDoc researchers I am/have worked with, research topics that I am particularly keen to explore with a PhD student or a PostDoc, and how to get in touch.

Blog and news

Analyses, curiosities, opinions, explanations, explorations, and random thoughts will appear at IKosmidis-Blog.

Collaboration platforms and social media

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

Take a look at my GitHub repositories and my Mastodon and Twitter feeds, and feel free to follow me on either.
