Fredrik D. Johansson, PhD
Postdoc @ MIT (IMES)
PhD in Computer Science from Chalmers University of Technology,
advised by Prof. Devdatt Dubhashi


My research interests are primarily focused on causal inference in machine learning. I have also been working on graph related methods and problems, including graph kernels and probabilistic graphical models.

I am part of the Clinical Machine Learning group at IMES at Massacusetts Institute of Technology working with Professor David Sontag.

I used to work in the LAB group at the Computer Science department of Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden.

Here is my CV (Dec '17).
