I'm a PhD student at Copenhagen Causality Lab at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Copenhagen. My PhD advisor is Niels Richard Hansen. I study graphical models, structure learning, and causal inference, in particular in relation to dynamical systems. The overarching goal of my thesis work is to develop methods for extracting causal information from partial observation of e.g. point processes, diffusions, and time series. One can represent causal systems by using graphs, and much of my work is focused on relating properties of graphs to properties of stochastic processes. I also work on learning algorithms and implementations of independence tests.

I have a background in mathematics and theoretical statistics, and I have experience with applied statistics and epidemiology from the Bandim Health Project.
