The focus of this causality reading group is on mathematical theory for causal inference, with some meetings dedicated to methodological developments. The reading group is organized by Aad van der Vaart and me. Meetings take place on Mondays, 16.00-17.30, and are open to all. For the time being, the meetings will take place online. If you’d like to be added to the mailing list, please send me an e-mail.
If you’re interested in causal inference, the following online seminar may also be of interest to you: here.
