Picture of Andrea Massari

Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a Physicist who turned to Data Science and have been teaching in some capacity for decades. I love history, math, statistics, music, languages, boardgames.

I think everybody should learn statistics from elementary school and that would fix a lot of biases and fallacies that ultimately create social conflict, prejudice, and policy mistakes in our world.
