Youjin Lee is a Manning Assistant Professor of Biostatistics. Dr. Lee’s primary research interest is in the development of statistical and causal inference methods with applications to public health and social science, including instrumental variable methods, longitudinal data analysis, and network analysis. 

Dr. Lee is particularly interested in settings where standard assumptions, such as independent observations or no unmeasured confounding assumptions, are violated. She has proposed various statistical and causal methods that remain valid when certain common assumptions are not met. Dr. Lee is currently working on causal inference methods with applications to policy effect evaluation and effective connectivity research.
