Methodology for network interference

Dec 14, 2018

I led a discussion on several intriguing papers on methods to address network interference in the seminar class provided by Prof. Sinan Aral. Topics include network exposure, graph cluster randomization, and bias reduction in networked experiments. I am happy to explore in this research area in the future. Please let me know if you have any thoughts to discuss with me!

I share my notes here.
