I’m Andi (they/them), a social scientist in London, UK. I work at a not-for-profit independent research organisation in London. Previously, I was an academic.

Здравствуйте, меня зовут Энди. Я социальный исследователь, а был преподавателем. Я учу русский язык.

You might be interested in my publications, a collection of tutorials on learning stats for social science using R, or some web apps I developed to assist teaching.

Some blog posts: here is a 100-word summary of critical realism, an attempt to explain what social ontology is all about, and another. I’m a huge fan of what critical theory-infused analytic philosophers are up to.

I’m also a fully-licenced amateur radio operator (callsign M0INF) so can transmit at up to 400 Watts; however, I work around 2-4 W using an antenna inside a London flat, experimenting with verrry slooow but robust digital modes like WSPR and FT8 with the help of the ionosphere. Here are apps I wrote for querying a WSPR spot database.

I use GitHub too.

A poem

maggie and milly and molly and may
went down to the beach(to play one day)

and maggie discovered a shell that sang
so sweetly she couldn’t remember her troubles,and

milly befriended a stranded star
whose rays five languid fingers were;

and molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:and

may came home with a smooth round stone
as small as a world and as large as alone.

For whatever we lose(like a you or a me)
it’s always ourselves we find in the sea

— E. E. Cummings
