Andy Eschbacher
Data Scientist

Currently a senior data scientist at Premise Data where I build data science software and solve problems, often related to data collected from around the world with a location component. Previous to Premise, I did a short stint at Ipsos’ Risk Analytics Division where I worked on spatial data science and visualization for international development projects. Before this, I spent five years at Carto developing my skills in spatial data science and building a lot of prototypes.


I teach Geospatial Cloud Computing & Visualization at the MUSA program at the University of Pennsylvania. With a strong emphasis on data analysis in Python with SQL and PostGIS, students build web applications using Flask and HTML templates. The student-built web apps tell stories with data housed in cloud databases (PostgreSQL on AWS and Google BigQuery) and served via AWS.
