Xiaoxuan Cai is currently a 5th year Ph.D student working with Forrest W. Crawford

I am interested in developing statistical tools to solve real-world problems in epidemiology and public health. My current research projects center around evaluating infectious disease outcomes, and use methods including causal inference, survival analysis, non-parametric estimation.
