Title: The important role of heterogeneity in social and biological models
This talk will address the role of heterogeneity in behavioral and biological models. People respond differently to interventions, making the discussion of a single, one-size-fits-all treatment effect somewhat difficult. We will discuss recent advances that allow for more careful modeling of heterogeneity. Problems due to heterogeneity are particularly important when combining behavioral and biological variables.
