Karla Diaz-Ordaz joins keynote line-up for RSS 2024 Conference

The latest addition to the speaker line-up at this September’s RSS Conference in Brighton has been announced as Karla Diaz-Ordaz.

Karla is a principal research fellow based at UCL’s Statistical Science department, funded by a Royal Society-Wellcome Trust Sir Henry Dale fellowship. Her research focuses on causal inference, in particular its interplay with statistical machine learning. This includes theoretical developments, novel methodology and applied data science in policy evaluation, pharmacoepidemiology and clinical trials.

Her areas of expertise include developing and applying debiased machine learning estimators to problems such as heterogeneous treatment effects, counterfactual prediction, explainability (variable importance), missing data and counterfactual fairness. She also actively collaborates on interdisciplinary research projects, spanning health, social sciences and veterinary studies.

Karla joins Hadley Wickham, Tim Harford and Erica Thompson as confirmed keynote speakers at the conference.

The conference will take place from 2–5 September in Brighton. Full details can be found on the conference website.
