As a Christmas tradition, I usually put together a short list of articles that are not directly relevant to my research but I still find intriguing. (Last year I did not do this because I was focussing on finishing my PhD instead.) Because a couple of people have asked me for this list, I decided to post them here (in alphabetic order).Continue reading “Christmas reading list”
As a followup to last week’s post, I will discuss how the emerging results of police diversity in the UK compare to trends in the US and why it is important to increase ethnic diversity in the police force.
Thanks to the referral of Ben Bradford, I had the privilege to work with Vikram Dodd from The Guardian who asked me to have a look at some data on police diversity in Britain. Vikram’s excellent piece can be read here, and he mentioned me by name in the article. In this post, I will discuss the analysis I did and how it informed the Bias in Britain project.Continue reading “Police diversity and #biasinbritain 1.”
This is just a brief announcement that the Quantitative Methods Reading Group at LSE resumes this year! For further updates regarding this year’s meetings and the papers to be discussed please visit the following website:
This is the end of my PhD journey: I had my viva voce (for normal human beings: PhD defense) this Monday and passed without corrections. Hooray! 🙂
I am also fortunate enough to be able to start my new position as a postdoctoral research fellow at the same university and same department right away (this coming Monday). I am sure I will write a lot about the project I am working on in the coming months. This is to the start of my new journey:
I am still very new to blogging – a couple of people have recently suggested that I should publish my conference presentations on my website, which is so obvious but has never occurred to me earlier. I had the privilege to give two presentations last weekend at EUROCRIM in Sarajevo.
I have recently finalised the literature review of my thesis and browsing through the references made me realise which are the books that I found most influential when it comes to procedural justice policing. Here is a selection of six books which could serve as a springboard for anyone who is getting newly acquainted with/wants to get deeper into the literature.
After more than two dozens of blog posts, today is the blog’s one-year anniversary. Thank you all of you for visiting, reading, and commenting, I will keep writing and posting.
Until the next time, here is another Star Trek video to celebrate this by:
Live long and prosper.
As mentioned in an earlier post, I have had the privilege to be one of the founders and first organiser of LSE’s Quantitative Methods Reading Group. The Reading Group’s first academic year has just concluded, and with twelve fascinating articles and discussions under its belt, it goes on a well-deserved summer vacation. I collated all the literature chosen throughout the year, it is worth a browse:
I have not been blogging as diligently lately, and one of the reasons for this is that I have been a bit preoccupied with writing resubmissions. As part of this process, I had to revisit the issue of treatment effect consistency which I discussed last summer. This post discusses an alternative way of assessing and quantifying whether treatment effect (in)consistency is present, using methods adopted from meta-analysis.
