Personal Introduction

I am Yuhao Wang, a final year Ph.D. student at Laboratory for Information & Decision Systems at MIT working with Professor Caroline Uhler. Before joining MIT, I got my bachelor from Tsinghua University.

Research Focus

My primary research interests are in causal inference. More specifically, I am interested in developing new statistical methods to estimate the underlying causal relationship of different elements either from purely observational data or from a combination of observational and interventional data. This requires the marriage of recent advances in high-dimensional statistics, graph theory and optimization. I also work on high-dimensional statistics, such as the sample efficiency problems in high-dimensional regressions and undirected graphical models. Now I am also exploring topics in nonparametric statistics, such as shape-restricted density estimation.
