Aaditya Ramdas is an assistant professor in the Departments of Statistics and Machine Learning at Carnegie Mellon University.

He is one of the organizers of the amazing and diverse StatML Group at CMU.

These days, he has 3 major directions of research:
1. selective and simultaneous inference (interactive, structured, post-hoc control of false discovery/coverage rate,…),
2. sequential uncertainty quantification (confidence sequences, always-valid p-values, bias in bandits,…), and
3. assumption-free black-box predictive inference (conformal prediction, calibration,…).

Outside of work, here are three easy topics for conversation: travel/outdoors (hiking, scuba, etc.), trash-free living, Ironman triathlon.
