Keywords graphical models
causal inference
Areas of expertise I am interested in modelling of complex - high dimensional as well as dynamic - systems based on graphical models. Applications are for example in epidemiology, forensics, genetics or bio-medical research in general. In particular, my research deals with using graphical models for causal inference in such systems, i.e. when assessing the effect of interventions is the target of inference. This also has a philosophical touch to it - what is and how do we formalise causality?
