July 29, 2020

The grant will support a team of Harvard faculty working on new methods for causal inference and machine learning.

From HDSI's announcement: "[This] grant, totaling about $1 million, enables three collaborative projects led by faculty, each from a different Harvard school:

  • Francesca Dominici will lead the design of new methods for characterizing subpopulations that experience different causal effects of a given intervention.
  • Kosuke Imai, Professor of Government and of Statistics at the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences, will lead the development of new methods to identify and estimate causal effects using data that vary in time and space.
  • Jose Zubizarreta, Associate Professor of Health Care Policy at Harvard Medical School, will lead work to improve experimental design in high-dimensional settings."
