I am an Assistant Professor in Emory's Quantitative Theory & Methods Department. I work on methods for estimating causal effects from observational studies and experiments and sometimes on the R packages synthdid and grf.

This Fall, I'm teaching Regression Analysis (QTM 220) and Machine Learning and Nonparametric Estimation (QTM 385). If you're a student and want to work with me, start by taking the second one or learning the stuff it covers.

Before coming to Emory, I did a PhD at Columbia with Arian Maleki and José Zubizarreta and a postdoc at Stanford with Susan Athey, Guido Imbens, and Stefan Wager. Years ago, I was a computer vision researcher in Michael Black's group at Brown and MPI Tübingen.
