🛠 Tools for Data Science Workshop A range of topics that were not covered in class (e.g. geospatial data, network data, text analysis, etc.) were subjects of our Tools for Data Science Workshop. Find the workshop website, including all materials here!

🎒 Statistical Modeling & Causal Inference

I reviewed the lecture materials and hold R tutorials on the practical implementation of causal inference techniques for two diverse, interdisciplinary and international groups of students on a weekly basis. In collaboration with Sebastian Ramirez-Ruiz, we constructed weekly assignments to assess their learning progress continuously.

Topics covered: Causality, DAGs, the Potential Outcomes Framework, Regression, Matching, Instrumental Variables, Regression Discontinuity Designs, Difference in Difference, Panel Data and Fixed Effects, Moderation and Mediation.

I reviewed the lecture materials and hold tutorials on how to derive estimates by hand (conceptually) and in R (applied).

Topics covered: Analyses of Variance, Repeated Measures, (Semi)Partial Correlation, Multiple Regression, Analyses of Covariance, Non Parametrical Tests.

🎒 Quantitative Methods I
