Host: Min Qian


Abstract

Gun violence is a problem in America. There are many unresolved questions about what policies would reduce gun violence. I will discuss two attempts at causal inference about gun violence prevention policies that I have worked on, and highlight some ideas about causal inference I have sought to use in this work.
