Data Scientist

I am data scientist on a journey to explore football data from technical, tactical and physical sources. I have a PhD from AUT Univeristy in Strength and Conditioning, focussing on match-running in elite female soccer. This provided me with valuable skills in data analysis using Excel, which I am now expanding in to R and Python through self learning.

The purpose of this blog is to provide an insight in to my journey by providing tutorials on some of the basic analyses. These tutorials will aim to become more advanced as time goes on. Hopefully, the blogs will provide new R users, or Python users, with the ability to follow along and also become proficient in coding to analyse football data.
