I am member of XY Research, a sports analytics research group. Our primary focus is the analysis of spatio-temporal player tracking data from the NBA, NHL, and Premier League. Modern sports data is not just big data, its rich data. Further, there is a long tradition of using sports to illustrate challenging concepts in statistics and computation. I have gained many statistical insights by analyzing sports data and I am constantly finding ways to connect the methodology I apply in sports to other domains.
