I conduct applied and methodological research in causal inference, which is the design and analysis of experiments and observational studies.  My methodological work includes power analyses, simulation studies, applied Bayesian analysis, and the use of negative and positive controls in experimental design.  My areas of application include education, healthcare, basic science, and genetics.  My future research agenda is to apply causal inference techniques to pressing problems in environmental and climate change science.  Please reach out if you would like to collaborate on environmentally focused work!
