I was fortunate enough to be awarded a one-year ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship with the ‘industrial strategy steer’ award at the London School of Economics for my project titled ‘Using advanced data analytics to assess the spatial causal effects of policing policies and practices’ (I will start in this position on the 1st of October). My principal aim with this fellowship is to test and advance theoretical understanding of some core causal claims of the policing literature. Specifically, I will scrutinise neighbourhood-level and location-based police effects.Continue reading “ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship”
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:
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:
This is another post with a news item: I have recently registered to the Open Science Foundation’s website where I have already uploaded two papers of mine (more to come in due time). My supervisor, Jon Jackson has encouraged me to do this, which I am really grateful for. It is great to have your articles accessible somewhere whilst you are waiting for the painstakingly slow review process to hopefully bear some fruit…

Just a quick announcement: I have been convinced to join the Twitter community. You can find me @kriszposh (I have added my so far empty Twitter handle to the site as well). Continue reading “Twitter account”
This is just a quick announcement: with other quant people at Department of Methodology at LSE, we have just started the Quantitative Methods Reading Group. This will be a fortnightly group for PhD students where we can discuss papers on/using advanced quantitative methods from different disciplines in the social sciences. Further details and up-to-date information on the upcoming meetings can be found on the Reading Group’s website.
Should you be interested, please do not hesitate to get in touch, I am happy to add you to the Reading Group’s newsletter.
Welcome to this very first post on my blog! Continue reading “La Vita Nuova”
