Role: Research Associate
Email Address: Xuewen.Yu@mrc-bsu.cam.ac.uk
I am a Research Associate at MRC Biostatistics Unit working with Robert Goudie. Before starting my research at University of Cambridge, I completed my master in Applied Statistics at University of Oxford, and finished my PhD in the Oxford-Warwick Statistics Programme at University of Warwick.
My research interests include graphical models, Bayesian inference and causal inference. My PhD project developed causal algebras on Chain Event Graphs and proposed a framework for a hierarchical causal analysis. I worked closely with reliability data with free texts, so I am also interested in Natural Language Processing and combining it with causal analysis. Please check my personal website for more details about me.
