About Me


My name is Olawale E. Salaudeen, and I am a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, advised by Sanmi Koyejo. Prior to moving to Illinois, I received a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering and minors in Computer Science and Mathematics from the Texas A&M University.

Research Interests


I am broadly interested machine learning in general and causal inference/discovery. In particular, I work on domain generalization and causal structure learning (under measurement error). Additionally, I am interested in applications to neuroscience, healthcare, and fairness.
