Our Academic Convenors, Sebastian Koehler and Susana Salgado, expertly design the programme to suit your research needs regardless of your chosen environment to learn. Sebastian and Susana both have internationally recognised experience in researching, teaching and training in qualitative or quantitative research methods. We work with them to ensure that our Methods School continues to grow, innovate and thrive.
Sebastian Koehler is Lecturer in Political Economy at the Department of Political Economy, King's College London and proud father of a lovely daughter. He had previously held positions at the Center for Data and Methods, University of Konstanz (2017-2021) and the Department of Government at the London School of Economics and Political Science (2014-2017).
Sebastian's main research interests are in Political Economy and Political Science. He focuses on understanding the role of institutions and their impact on strategic interactions in politics, in particular regarding lobbying, legislative politics, as well as bargaining and political decision-making. He emphasises a strong connection between formal theory and empirical analysis. Methodologically, he is interested in network analysis and methods of causal inference.
Susana Salgado is Principal Research Fellow at the Institute of Social Sciences, University of Lisbon, where she coordinates competitively funded research projects and teaches at the PhD programme in Comparative Politics. She had previously held positions at the New University of Lisbon and at the University of Oxford, as well as visiting positions in Brazil, Italy, and Australia.
Susana’s main research interests include political communication, democracy and democratization processes, populism, as well as the impact of different types of media on democratic politics. Susana’s work has a strong interdisciplinary perspective, and her approaches to these topics have been mainly comparative and mixed methods.
