David A. Hirshberg aka Skip
211 Sequoia Hall
Welcome. I am a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University working with Susan Athey, Stefan Wager, and Guido Imbens of the Stanford Graduate School of Business. Before coming to Stanford in Fall 2018, I was a Ph.D. student in the Statistics Department at Columbia University in New York. My advisors there were José Zubizarreta and Arian Maleki. My current research centers on semiparametric and nonparametric methods for estimating causal effects and other data summaries relevant to decision-making. Years ago, I was a computer vision researcher in Michael Black's group at Brown University and MPI Tübingen.
