Ilya Shpitser, John C. Malone Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science, is a recipient of the National Science Foundation’s Early CAREER Award.

Shpitser’s five-year CAREER award will support his project, “Robust Causal and Statistical Inference in High Dimensional Structured Systems with Hidden Variables,” which aims to significantly advance understanding of all major tasks in causal systems with hidden variables: identification, estimation, and
computationally efficient probabilistic calculations.

The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization.
