Title: A new multivariate location scale skew family of densitiesAbstract:  The class of multivariate skewed distributions has received extensive attention recently. The motivation originates from datasets which often do not follow the normal distribution, including financial, energy, biomedical and many other ones.We propose a multivariate skew transformation which allows the modeling of skewness...

SDS Seminar Series - Joe Antonelli

Title: Doubly robust approaches to causal inference in high dimensionsAbstract: Valid estimation of treatment effects from observational data requires proper control of confounding. If the number of covariates is large relative to the number of observations, then controlling for all available covariates is infeasible. In this talk, I will discuss two projects...
