Dr. Kleinberg is an expert on causality, inference from complex data and biomedical informatics. Her work combines these areas, uniting temporal logic and tools from computer science with philosophical theories of causality to solve biomedical problems. She has previously applied these methods to stock return time series as well as political speeches and popularity ratings.

Before her appointment at Stevens, she served as a postdoctoral Computing Innovation Fellow at Columbia University, in the Department of Biomedical Informatics. Her book, Causality, Probability, and Time, is now available in print and electronically.
