The Political Methodology Lab (PML) is MIT's center of activities related to quantitative methods in political science. Our primary mission is to foster research and education in quantitative political methodology through various channels. We are always looking for innovative ways to fulfill our mission in the midst of constantly advancing technology. 

In our speaker series, we invite first-rate methodologists to present their current research so that the methods community at MIT will have the opportunity to interact with them and learn about cutting-edge research in quantitative methods. In our workshop series, we organize tutorials for faculty, researchers and students who want to acquire new computational and analytical skills. We also fund faculty and student research projects on quantitative methods and various methods-related activities initiated by members of our community.

The PML is generously supported by the Department of Political Science and the School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences.
