Noor Alam Receives a $500k National Science Foundation CAREER Award
Assistant Professor Md. Noor E Alam, of the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, received a $500K National Science Foundation CAREER Award for developing “Robust Matching Algorithms for Causal Inference in Large Observational Studies.” The research will utilize the power of Big Data to infer causality in large-scale observational studies. It will develop tractable computational approaches to facilitate better policy decision making. As an important use case, the project will evaluate policies for improving treatment quality of Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) using large-scale U.S. healthcare data.
