In Statathlon, I’m combining my main passions: sports & data science.

Therefore, for me Statathlon is a unique project based on the above that enables me to use my passion for research and writing about an important aspect of my life.

As an engineer I have learned that it is not only about deriving the result but also explaining it. In Statathlon I found the unique opportunity to combine mathematics with my other passion, football, and strive to describe the phenomena that rule it.
