Research Topic:

A key challenge when developing policy is that the effects of a new policy are unknown until it is implemented. To address this problem, policy-makers resort to comparing similar policies abroad, performing policy trials, or developing statistical models that assist in predicting likely outcomes. My research focuses on the latter: recent advances in ADM which allows for significant improvements in data-informed decisions with fast and cost-efficient predictions of policy outcomes.

PhD Working title: Interactive Algorithmic Decision-Making For Public Policy
