I’m Krisztián (Chris) Pósch, a postdoctoral research officer in the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics. I am currently working on a project titled ‘Using advanced data analytics to assess the spatial causal effects of policing policies and practices’ which received funding and the ‘industrial strategy steer’ award from the ESRC.
My research concerns the public perception of the police, especially procedural justice policing, police legitimacy, and their impact on societally desirable outcomes (such as cooperation with the police, legal compliance, etc.). I use advanced quantitative methods to address questions regarding policing, especially causal inference techniques, such as matching and causal mediation analysis. In addition, I have a good familiarity with experimental methods, survey research methods, multivariate analysis and measurement, multilevel and longitudinal analysis.
