I am a postdoctoral researcher @ Yu Group, UC Berkeley, supervised by Bin Yu and supported by a research grant (210976) from the Swiss National Science Foundation.

My research interests are causal inference, distribution generalization, and extreme value theory.

I am currently working on distributional generalization problems from a causal perspective to develop predictive methods that generalize to unseen environments.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher @ Copenhagen Causality Lab, University of Copenhagen, supervised by Jonas Peters and Niklas Pfister. I obtained a PhD under the supervision of Sebastian Engelke @ Research Center for Statistics, University of Geneva, and a master’s thesis in Statistics under the supervision of Nicolai Meinshausen @ Seminar for Statistics, ETH Zurich.

Keywords: causal inference, distribution generalization, extreme value theory.
