Eric Tchetgen Tchetgen’s primary area of interest is in semi-parametric efficiency theory with application to causal inference, missing data problems, statistical genetics, and mixed model theory. In general, he works on the development of statistical and epidemiologic methods that make efficient use of the information in data collected by scientific investigators, while avoiding unnecessary assumptions about the underlying data generating mechanism. Dr. Tchetgen Tchetgen received his PhD from Harvard University. He is a co-winner of the 2022 Rousseeuw Prize for Statistics and was awarded the Myrto Lefkopoulou Distinguished Lectureship in 2020.
