Education (Master’s ‘18, Education Policy & Management)
My areas of interest include educational measurement, program evaluation, and high stakes evaluation. I care about improving communication around teacher and parent interpretations of evaluations or test scores and better understanding their uses.
Statistics (PhD '18)
I enjoy learning about causal inference methods and am especially interested in developing methodology for observational studies, understanding the legitimacy of using machine learning methods to make causal claims, and assessing treatment effect heterogeneity --- in randomized experiments as well as across subgroups defined by post-randomization behavior. Favorite application areas include education, public health, and social public policy.
