My PhD project is about designing models for causal reasoning. The project uses data from philosophy, cognitive science, linguistics and logic to achieve a precise understanding of what kind of information we use when we judge that a causal relation holds.
The project is called Foundations of Mechanistic Reasoning: The structure of asking 'How?' and funded by the NWO PhDs in the Humanities grant. For a light description of my project, please click here. All materials and results from the project are available open access here.
The Causal Inference Lab is dedicated to studying causal inference using empirical and formal methods. We host a biweekly reading group where we discuss recent advances in the field—everyone with an interest in discussing causal inference is very welcome to come along. We also host talks by reserachers studying causality.
The Causal Inference Lab brings together researchers from every faculty of the University of Amstedam (the Faculty of Humanities, the Faculty of Science, and the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences). We are based at the Institute of Logic, Language and Computation. See here for a list of current members.
We are always happy to hear from people working on causal inference. If you would like work with us, or present your work at the Causal Inference Lab, please get in touch!
