Poster at MIT CODE 2018

Ali Tafti and I presented a poster on Controlling or losing control? Conditioning on covariates in randomized experiments guided by causal structure at the 2018 Conference on Digital Experimentation (CODE) at MIT.  We use Pearl's causal diagrams to show which variables can, should, or should not be conditioned on, and illustrate it on 4 well-known digital experiments.
