Mathematics and Statistics

Andreas Anastasiou is a Lecturer at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Cyprus. Undergraduate studies at the University of Cyprus (B.Sc. in Mathematics and Statistics, 2011). Postgraduate studies at the University of Oxford (M.Sc. in Applied Statistics 2012, D.Phil. in Statistics, 2016). He has worked at the Department of Statistics of the London School of Economics and Political Science (Postdoctoral Research Officer, 2016-2019) and at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Cyprus (Lecturer, 2019-present). His main research interests fall into two areas of Statistics; time series analysis and distributional approximations. In terms of time series analysis, he currently works in change-point detection problems, where the aim is to separate a given data sequence into homogeneous segments leading to a more flexible model. With regards to approximations in Statistics, he is interested in finding upper bounds on distributional distances between the distribution of a known quantity and its asymptotic distribution. Such bounds give a quantitative aspect on famous qualitative, approximate results. He is a member of the Cyprus Statistical Society and also the Society’s representative to the Board of the European Courses in Advanced Statistics, (2018- present).
