Picture of Stefan

I am a postdoctoral researcher in statistics at Columbia University, and will begin an appointment as assistant professor of Operations, Information, and Technology at Stanford Graduate School of Business in the fall of 2017. I completed my PhD in statistics at Stanford University in 2016, under the supervision of Brad Efron and Guenther Walther.

My research focuses on adapting ideas from machine learning to statistical problems that arise in scientific applications. I am particularly interested in causal inference, non-parametric statistics, uses of subsampling for data analysis, and empirical Bayes methods.

I am currently serving as an associate editor for Biometrika.
