Alexander Franks

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics and Applied Probability at the University of California, Santa Barbara. My research interests include covariance estimation, multivariate analysis and high dimensional data, errors-in-variables models, missing data, and spatio-temporal methods. I apply this methodology predominantly to problems in computational biology and sports.

I am also an active member of the XY Research group, which conducts research in sports statistics with a focus on player-tracking data.
