About


 I'm an assistant professor in the department of Computer Science and Operations Research (DIRO) at the University of Montreal and a core academic member of Mila - Quebec Artificial Intelligence Institute.  I'm fortunate to receive generous support as a Canada CIFAR AI Chair.

My research interests include:
  • Causal inference from text and networks
  • Probabilistic machine learning
  • Causal criteria for more reliable or fair ML methods
