About Me

I am a PhD candidate in the College of Information and Computer Sciences of UMass Amherst, where I am advised by David Jensen. My research focuses on methods for causal inference from observational relational data. Specifically, my work encompasses three areas: (1) hypothesis testing for dependence and causal direction in relational domains, (2) learning the structure of relational causal models, and (3) effect estimation in the presence of confounding from peer influences. I have received a MS and BS in computer science from UMass Amherst.
