I like to understand why people behave as they do. I wrote my PhD thesis in causality. Is the latter caused by the former? You might need to collect more data to decide.
I am a GPS-type person: I can eagerly work for goals that were set by others but also recommend new directions if they also seem worth following. I always look at how we could move forward instead of complaining about others’ mistakes or bad circumstances.
I am interested in how we can exploit advanced machine learning methods to improve the standard techniques for estimating treatment effects and how can I civilize our dog so that he does not drive me crazy more often than my three kids put together.
