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.
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.
I just joined Team Populism as the head of Team Survey responsible for survey research on populist attitudes. Hoping to bring together a good group of scholars to study the subject. Check out Team Populism HERE.

Thanks for the committees that deemed me worthy of the promotion. (Please don’t look at the photo at the link.)
I will work hard to live up to it and move past it.
I usually do not do popular media appearances, but here’s one about my research in the Hungarian media.
Today, I am starting a new adventure of an EU Framework Program 7 research grant funded collaborative research project with 9 other Universities. CUPESSE, or the Cultural Pathways to Economic Self-Sufficiency and Entrepreneurship, “is dedicated to the comparative analysis of youth unemployment in Europe. By taking issues related both to the demand and supply sides into consideration, the project aims to obtain a comprehensive picture of the causes and consequences of unemployment among young people as well as to formulate policy strategies and recommendations for addressing this ever-growing issue. The project brings together a broad network of researchers and practitioners from the fields of economics, political science, psychology, and sociology.”
For me the appeal is less the dependent variable and more the family studies and methodology. My team is specifically responsible for the data analysis work package.
