Subject: Biostatistics - Anesthesia - Intensive Care

Thesis subject

Research topic on causal inference from observational data (i.e., cohorts), focusing on the use of propensity scores based methods and their limitations, possible alternatives (G-Computation, TMLE), and the value of using data-adaptive methods (machine learning) to improve our estimations.
