Gabriel Okasa

Postdoctoral Researcher
EPFL

I am a postdoctoral researcher in data science at the Chair for Technology and Innovation Strategy (TIS-EPFL). I obtained my PhD in economics and finance with specialization in econometrics at the University of St.Gallen, Switzerland. Prior to joining EPFL I was affiliated with the Swiss Institute for Empirical Economic Research (SEW-HSG). My research interests lie at the intersection of econometrics and machine learning, focusing on both predictive as well as causal machine learning. I am particularly interested in robust machine learning and estimators based on resampling methods. Besides the theory I enjoy the statistical programming of the related algorithms, mainly using R and Python.
