Speaker: Gianluca Baio, UCL   Title: "Quick & clean: computationally efficient methods for Value of Information measures"   Abstract: Recently, there has been much research devoted to developing computationally efficient methods for various measures of the Value of Information in health economics, including the Expected Value of Partial Information (EVPPI) and the Expected Value of Sample Information (EVSI). I will present two sets of methods, one based on computationally efficient Gaussian Process regression based on Integrated Nested Laplace Approximation to…

BSU Seminar Series: “Using sparsity to overcome unmeasured confounding: Two examples”

October 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Speaker: Qingyuan Zhao, University of Cambridge Title: Using sparsity to overcome unmeasured confounding: Two examples Abstract: Sparsity is often used to improve the interpretability of a statistical analysis and/or reduce the variance of a statistical estimator. This talk will explore another aspect—the utility of sparsity in model identifiability through two problems motivated by genetics applications. The first problem is about removing “batch effects” or latent confounders in multiple hypothesis testing. I will present a general framework called Confounder Adjusted Testing…

BSU Seminar Series: “Causal inference for Dynamic Treatment Strategies: The renaissance of the g-formula”

Speaker: Miguel Hernan, Harvard School of Public Health Title: "Causal inference for Dynamic Treatment Strategies: The renaissance of the g-formula" Abstract: Causal questions about the comparative effectiveness and safety of health-related interventions are becoming increasingly complex. Decision makers are now often interested in the comparison of interventions that are sustained over time and that may be personalized according to the individuals’ time-evolving characteristics. These dynamic treatment strategies cannot be adequately studied by using conventional analytic methods that were designed to…
