Abstract

Many statistical problems in causal inference involve a probability distribution other than the one from which data are actually observed; as an additional complication, the quantity of interest is often a marginal quantity of this other probability distribution.  This creates many practical complications for statistical inference, even where the problem is non-parametrically identified.

Naive attempts to specify a model parametrically can lead to unwanted consequences such as incompatible parametric assumptions or the so-called 'g-null paradox'. As a consequence, it is difficult to perform likelihood-based inference or even to simulate from the model in a general way.  We argue that this occurs because insufficient thought is given to which parts of the model are truly of interest, what nuisance parameters remain to be specified given the parts of interest, and what other aspects of the distribution are redundant and can be derived from the rest.  We provide a recipe for constructing a smooth, non-redundant parameterization using (identifiable) causal quantities of interest.

We adapt some existing marginal parameterizations to causal models for both continuous and discrete data, allowing us to parameterize a wide range of causal models including marginal structural models (MSMs), Cox MSMs, and structural nested models. This makes it easy to simulate from and fit models; to introduce possibly high-dimensional individual-level covariates, and to include additional assumptions such as stationarity or symmetry. Our approach is likelihood-based, and therefore also amenable to a fully Bayesian approach.  We also provide an R package that implements these routines.

Welcome to a workshop about how you can promote interactivity when you teach via Zoom.

Content

During this hour we will show, tell and discuss how you can promote participants' activity when teaching/meeting via Zoom.

The workshop is designed for those who have used Zoom previously and know about the basic functions (if you are a beginner with Zoom, start by attending "Drop-in workshop: teaching with Zoom", see calendar).

The session is in English.

Join the workshop

Join the session here.

No registration.

Equipement

You need a webcam (the one inbuilt in your laptop will work fine) and equipment with good quality sound.

The workshop is arranged jointly by Karolinska Institutet and Lund university, with participants from both universities. It is run by educational developers Maria Kvarnström, KI and Lotta Åbjörnsson, LU.

Lead

The aim of Karolinska Immunology Seminar Series (KiSS) is to create an event with top speakers from all over the world that brings together the immunological community of Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska University Hospital. We aim to cover a diverse spectrum of immunological topics while at the same time inviting outstanding speakers whose work is of general interest for everyone who wants to follow current trends in immunology.

Content

Due the current epidemiological situation the seminars will take place through zoom from private computers only. Please follow the emails (through KiiM and CMM lists) or contact one of the organizers a day or two before the seminar to get the zoom link and to follow possible changes in the schedule.

The seminars are supported by Allergy, Immunology and Inflammation PhD program.

All seminars are on Thursdays, 15:00-16:00.
