Personal profile

Research interests

John H.J. Einmahl is professor of Statistics at the Department of Econometrics & OR and research fellow at CentER, both at Tilburg University. John's research has been published in leading journals in Statistics and Probability Theory, like the Annals of Statistics, the Annals of Probability, JRSS B, JASA, J. of Econometrics, and Probability Theory and Related Fields. His research interests are mainly in the area of nonparametric statistics and its ramifications, including statistics of extremes, empirical likelihood, generalized and multivariate quantiles, and (local) empirical processes.


John is a fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and he has been an elected member of its council. He is also an elected member of the International Statistical Institute.  John is an Associate Editor of Extremes, Econometrics and Statistics, and Statistica Neerlandica. He has been an Associate Editor of The Annals of Statistics, The Annals of Probability, Bernoulli, and the J. of Statistical Planning and Inference. He has been a codirector of the Stochastics of Extremes and Risk Analysis program at the European research institute Eurandom. He visited Florida State University as a Senior Fulbright Scholar. He is a co-chair of the organizing committee of the 10th Extreme Value Analysis meeting in Delft in 2017.
