Major research areas are causal inference, non-regular asymptotics, optimization, and reinforcement learning. Primary application areas include precision medicine, sports- and e-sports analytics, adaptive conservation, and the management of infectious diseases. We also have a small robotics laboratory that we use to study cooperative and competitive decision problems.
Our research has benefitted from the support of (or collaboration with) our partners.
Laber Labs offers a wide range of consulting services and industry partnership models. Our experience has shown that industry partnerships can have an enormous impact (ROI) for a sponsoring partner and moreover can create excellent training opportunities for students and postdoctoral researchers.
Consulting services include:
Industry partnerships typically involve a long-term (one year or more) research contract aimed at developing new research products in the form for research papers, monographs, grant proposals, or software. A standard arrangement has one or more PhD students from the lab working 20 hours per week on-site with the industry partner.
