Dr Cai’s research addresses statistical challenges and methodological problems in causal inference, missing data, mediation analysis, time series, and machine learning. Her work covers applications in intervention evaluation and trial design for outcomes subject to interference (e.g. infectious disease), as well as the analysis of multivariate time series of digital data (e.g., EMA, GPS traces, and accelerometer data) from wearable mobile devices.
