Richard Nickl (born 13 June 1980) is an Austrian mathematician and currently Professor of Mathematical Statistics [1][2] at the University of Cambridge. He is also a fellow of Queens' College, Cambridge.

He attended secondary school at the Theresianum in Vienna (graduating in 1998) and obtained his academic degrees from the University of Vienna, including a PhD in 2005.[3] He has made contributions to various areas of mathematical statistics, including non-parametric and high-dimensional inference and empirical process theory[4]. Jointly with Evarist Giné, he is the author of the monograph `Mathematical foundations of infinite-dimensional statistical models'[5], published with Cambridge University Press, which won the 2017 PROSE Award in the mathematics category.[6] He has been awarded the 2017 Ethel Newbold Prize of the Bernoulli Society and in 2015 was a recipient of a Consolidator Grant Award[7] by the European Research Council.
