Xiaowu Dai (戴晓武)

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics and Data Science, and the Department of Biostatistics, at the University of California, Los Angeles. I am also affiliated with California Center for Population Research (CCPR) and Consortium of Data Analytics in Risk (CDAR).

Previously, I was a postdoc at UC Berkeley from 2019-2022, advised by Prof. Michael I. Jordan, and also worked with Prof. Lexin Li (Biostats) and Prof. Robert M. Anderson (Econ). I was a member of CDAR, Berkeley AI Research Lab, and Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing.
