December 13, 2020
Posted a few new papers on arXiv; see the Publications tab.
December 2, 2020
I will be teaching a joint Rutgers-CMU-Waterloo PhD course (STAT946/ACTSC991) Game-theoretic statistical inference: betting, e-values and martingale in Winter 2021, together with Professors Glenn Shafer (Rutgers) and Aaditya Ramdas (Carnegie Mellon). PhD students interested in game-theoretic statistics and e-values are welcome.
November 10, 2020
Posted two working papers on arXiv: Optimizing distortion riskmetrics with distributional uncertainty (a unifying treatment for distortion riskmetrics under various settings of distributional uncertainty); Testing with p*-values: Between p-values and e-values (a new notion of p*-values is introduced for a few good reasons). Comments are appreciated.
October 11, 2020
Posted two working papers on SSRN: Bayes risk, elicitability, and the Expected Shortfall (a new notion of Bayes risk measures and two new characterizations); Dependence and risk attitudes: Neutrality and aversion (we introduce dependence neutrality and aversion, and show an equivalence between dependence and risk attitudes). Critical comments are very much welcome.
