Andromachi Tseloni is Professor of Quantitative Criminology and leads the Quantitative and Spatial Criminology Research Group at Nottingham Trent University. With expertise in victimisation theory, crime prevention, applied social statistics and econometrics, her work revolves around five broad themes: criminal victimisation inequalities, the crime drop, crime perceptions, social capital and cross-national comparisons.
Andromachi's research aims to inform crime prevention and public reassurance initiatives. It has been published in academic journals, edited books, book chapters, professional newsletters and reports. Her research on criminal victimisation inequalities has influenced the way victimisation is conceptualised, measured and analysed and it informs successful crime reduction / prevention policies. Her co-authored book "Using modelling to predict and prevent victimisation" (Springer, 2014) with Professor Ken Pease translates her work on individual and contextual factors influencing single and repeat criminal victimisation into crime prevention in practice.
Her collaborative research on the crime drop has offered fresh insights for crime prevention and methodology for evaluating the impact of security on crime, especially car crime, domestic burglary and non-domestic violence. Her most recent co-authored book "Reducing Burglary" (Springer 2018) with Dr Becky Thompson and Professor Nick Tilley focuses on the interventions which are most effective amongst different population groups and how these measures can be implemented to reduce burglary.
Professor Tseloni joined the School of Social Sciences in September 2015, having previously worked at various academic institutions: the University of Maryland, College Park, USA (1997-2001); the University of the Aegean, Lesvos (2001-2002), and the University of Macedonia, Thessaloniki (2002-2007), Greece; and in the UK the University of Manchester (1992-1995), University of Hull (1995-1997), Nottingham Trent University (2007-2013) and Loughborough University (2013-2015). She taught applied social research quantitative methods, especially at postgraduate level, and criminological theory, crime prevention and victimisation modules.
Prior to her Ph.D. on 'Modelling Threats in England and Wales' (Department of Econometrics and Social Statistics, University of Manchester) with full financial support from the State Scholarships Foundation (IKY, Greece), she had received a BA (Hons.) and an MA from the Athens University of Economics and Business, Greece.
