My research is mainly in the field of causal inference, with a particular focus on variable selection, sensitivity analysis, survival outcomes, regression discontinuity designs and data fusion.


NWO Veni grant (2019): Are you sure you didn’t miss something? Sensitivity analysis and variable selection for causal inference.
