About

I am a professor of computational statistics in the MATH department at University of Copenhagen. I cofounded Copenhagen Causality Lab and do research at the intersection of AI and statistics. My main interest is to automatize learning of causal explanations from data. I use techniques from Bayesian networks, stochastic processes, predictive modeling and machine learning to discover causal structures and achieve explainable, robust and transportable AI.

Interests

  • Causality
  • Machine learning and AI
  • Model selection
  • Stochastic dynamic models
  • Event processes

Education

  • PhD in Statistics, 2004
