Fall 2021 Distinguished Theme Seminar Series


Purdue Statistics is proud to announce the 2021 Distinguished Theme Seminar Series. The series introduces a timely and important research topic each year to the statistical audience via both introductory overview and in-depth research talks from leading researchers. All are welcome!

This year, our theme is Causal Inference. Causal inference is an important and expanding field which is widely studied across all sciences and has received a great deal of recent attention from the machine learning and statistics communities. From our diverse set of speakers, we will learn about many different approaches and applications of causal inference. Our esteemed speakers are:

Arman Sabbaghi (Purdue) - Aug 27 @ 10:30 a.m. EDT,

Donald B. Rubin (Temple, Tsinghua, and Harvard Universities) - Sept 3 @ 10:30 a.m.,
