Joining the Presidium of the Hungarian Political Science Association

I am honored to be elected by the membership of the Hungarian Political Science Association and especially thankful to Zsolt Enyedi for the nomination. I have not been a contributing part of Hungarian political science so I greatly appreciate the trust of my Hungarian colleagues especially in my absence. I will work hard not to let them down. I also would like to congratulate president Kriszta Arato for her election. Excellent choice. Looking forward to working together.

Joining ECPR Methods School as Academic Convenor

I am honored to be selected as the new Academic Convenor of the ECPR Methods Schools. With Bernhard Kittel leaving I have very big shoes to fill but I can pledge that I will not stop short of making this not only the best methods school it already is but also the best place for quantitative methods (which it is not… yet). I am also super happy to have CEU host the summer school from next year on.
