    Just had a natter with someone who worked at Cambridge University and there is no department of pyschometrics. Not sure if you meant The Psychometrics Centre at the Judge Business School. It’s not a big issue but it is an inaccuracy.

      It seems as though he wasn’t there either: https://www.psychometrics.cam.ac.uk/about-us/media-reports/statement-on-politics

      Aleksandr Kogan is not part of the Psychometrics Centre, has never been employed by the Psychometrics Centre and has not at any point been acting on our behalf nor in our interest.

        Thanks Dominic – we’ve amended the language that suggested he was affiliated. Here’s something from the WSJ on Kogan and the Centre.

        “Dr. Kogan isn’t formally affiliated with the Psychometrics Centre, though he has worked with researchers there.” https://www.wsj.com/articles/cambridge-university-pushes-back-against-facebook-scrutiny-of-research-apps-1523703601
