About the Project
Conducting formal causal inference for ecological data is challenging due to the complex observational processes that are usually involved. The propensity score method allows the estimation of causal effects in non-experimental studies, however is dependent on constructing emulated experiments to ensure independence between observation process and treatment allocation. This PhD will develop and apply novel methodology in causal inference for ecological observational studies, for example changes in spatio-temporal distribution and movement patterns driven by environmental disturbance and impact assessment studies.
