Lucas Kook

I am an assistant professor of statistics at the Vienna University of Economics and Business. Before, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher in statistics and causal inference at the Copenhagen Causality Lab. Together with Niklas Pfister and Jonas Peters, I work at the intersection of distributional regression and causal inference with a focus on biomedical applications.

I did my PhD at the University of Zurich under the supervision of Beate Sick and Torsten Hothorn. My PhD research focused on combining distributional regression models with deep learning approaches and causal inference to improve treatment decisions for acute ischemic stroke patients.
