Causal inference : methodological advances with an application to climate impact
- Causal inference lies at the heart of leveraging data to evaluate interventions and to inform policy decisions. This thesis makes three methodology contributions. The first two introduce methods in leveraging flexible machine learning models for causal estimators, in the context of estimating heterogeneous treatment effects and learning dynamic treatment policies respectively. The third contribution provides a framework to generalize results from randomized trials across locations. I will conclude with an application of applying the state-of-the-art causal methodology to studying the impact of wildfire risk perception on the California residential real estate market.
