Vasil (Vasco) Yasenov

Hi there, I am an applied statistician.

I work as a Senior Data Scientist at Adobe, at the Immigration Policy Lab at Stanford University, and I am a Research Affiliate at the IZA Institute of Labor Economics. I previously held postdoctoral positions at UC Berkeley and Stanford University.


My expertise is in applying and developing Causal Inference and Machine Learning tools to solve complex and ambiguous problems with data. I currently work on:

  • utilizing product usage data to improve the Adobe Experience Cloud, and

  • research projects related to economic and public health issues around immigration in the US.


My academic research has been published in leading peer-reviewed journals in labor economics, political science, medicine, and general science and has been featured by major media outlets such as the New York Times, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal.
