I’m Andreas Varotsis, a data scientist and public safety researcher working to improve the use of data and evidence in government.

I also help coordinate Police Rewired, a community of volunteer professionals with an interest in policing technology, community safety, and fighting crime.

I try to use empirical approach and multi-disciplinary, quantitative tools to understand, diagnose, and propose solutions to crime and policing questions.

My particular areas of interest are:

  • data-science and machine learning
  • crime and police activity in physical space
  • econometrics and economic modelling
  • experimental and quasi-experimental testing
  • rapid technological solutions and innovation

I use this site to showcase my recent work, and discuss new data-science and statistical tools and techniques on my blog.
