Research Focus

    The focus of my research is on causality or more particularly on causal discovery --- i.e. discovering causal structures from observational data. Hereby, I try to combine insights from information theory with concepts from causality. That is, in the sense of Ockham’s Razor, the simpler explanation is more likely to be the causal one.
