Giorgos Seitidis

Georgios Seitidis, PhD. born in 1991, is a Mathematician by training, and currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Psychology at the University of Ioannina.

Training: Georgios obtained his Bachelor’s degree from the Department of Mathematics at the University of Ioannina (completed in April 2015). After that he enrolled in the MSc in Statistics from the Statistics Department of the Athens University of Economics and Business (completed in May 2017). His Master thesis has the title “Investigation of the methodology for determining the specific parameters storage of insurance companies under SOLVENCY II” and was conducted under the supervision of Prof. Alexandros Zimbidis. Lastly, he completed his PhD thesis with the title “Using variable selection methods in network meta-analysis” at the Department of Primary Education under the supervision of Prof. Dimitris Mavridis.

Research interests: His research interests focus on systematic reviews and statistical modeling for meta-analysis and network meta-analysis. In particular, he is interested in developing statistical models for component network meta-analysis. He also actively develops statistical software based on R, in addition to his theoretical contributions.
