I am a fifth-year Doctoral Candidate studying Information and Decision Sciences at Carlson School of Management. I develop methods and frameworks that help decision-makers better conduct A/B testing experiments and also optimally target subjects and treatments in a budget constrained, heterogeneous treatment effect environment. These questions fall in the line of literature related to Heterogeneous Treatment effects and Multi-Arm Bandits. I use a mix of Statistics, Machine Learning and Causal Inference to solve the above problems.
