Luke W. Miratrix
Assistant Professor of Education
Harvard Graduate School of Education
Luke Miratrix was most recently an assistant professor of Statistics in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University. His primary research focus is on causality with a focus on developing methodology to assess and characterize treatment effect heterogeneity in randomized clinical trials and observational studies. He also has conducted statistical evaluations of large-scale cluster-randomized trials of education interventions. Other research interests include data mining using high-dimensional and sparse (regularized) methods, with a focus on text summarization in contexts such as newspaper corpora, legal decisions, and databases of free-text reports. Miratrix received his doctorate in Statistics from University of California, Berkeley in spring 2012 after switching to that field in 2009 from SESAME, a doctorate program in Mathematics and Science education also at Berkeley. He also has an M.S. in Computer Science from M.I.T., a B.S. in Computer Science from the California Institute of Technology, and a B.A. in Mathematics from Reed College. Between graduate careers, he was a high school teacher and tutor for seven years.
