My research revolves around the inference and estimation of parameters arising in causal inference using non/semi-parametric statistical models. I am working on a class of parameters s.t. non-pathwise differentiable (for example, dose-response curve over continuous exposure). Although I have worked mostly with nonparametric models, I am interested in leveraging semi-parametric constraints to the inference and study its efficiency under such models (e.g., set of conditional independence and structured confounding).
Previously, I received my B.S. in Computer Science and minor in Engineering Statistics from Cornell University in 2019, where I was advised by Thorsten Joachims.
Outside of Computer Science, I enjoy studying art history, particularly the philosophy developed by Guy Debord that our socio-cultural beliefs are governed by a photographic representation of the world instead of physical experiences. Living in the age of photographic representations, or the Spectacle, I am interested in the role of visual culture (e.g., films, architecture, typography) in defining both personal and socio-cultural concept of aesthetics.
