About Me

I am a fourth year undergraduate at Tokyo Institute of Technology.

My research lies at the intersection of machine learning and causal inference called counterfactual machine learning. I am interested in the counterfactual nature of logged bandit feedback obtained from interactive systems, and ways of using biased real-world datasets to assist better decision making. Most recently, I have been focusing on the intersection of counterfactual machine learning and information retrieval.
