ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship

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).

Specifically, I will scrutinise neighbourhood-level and location-based police effects.

End of a journey… …and start of a new one!

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:

Quantitative Methods Reading Group – End of the first year!

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:

OSF account

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…

Quantitative Methods Reading Group

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.
