My story: Sairah Lai Fa Chen

Being an active EPINOR member from the University of Tromsø made it possible for me to attend a one-week long course on new statistical methods for causal inference (MF9570) at the University of Oslo in November 2019. It was a fantastic, hefty teaching of counterfactuals and mediation analysis.
