I'm a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University working on a

PhD in Logic, Computation, and Methodology. Before coming to CMU, I did my undergraduate studies at Columbia University.

I study methods of causal inference: specifically, how researchers can use tools from statistics and machine learning to predict the outcomes of interventions or policies. Some of my research involves designing and implementing algorithms for learning causal structure (represented by graphical models or Bayesian networks) from observational data. These can be used to estimate the consequences of manipulations, which might be social/economic policies, medical treatments, or some other changes to the system under study. I focus on applications of these methods in the social sciences (economics, sociology, political science, epidemiology) and in biomedicine. I also have interests in the foundations of statistics and probability, including decision theory.

I am member of the algorithm development / data science research group in the NIH-funded Center for Causal Discovery.
