BIG Math Network Industry Connection Series: Sports Analytics

The Industry Connection Series features interactive “office hours” with mathematical scientists working in industry. The goal is to connect mathematical sciences students directly with industry members who can answer student-generated questions. Students at all levels are welcome and encouraged to attend and ask questions. The February and March events of the series have been a great success!

The next event is coming soon on Thursday May 27th, 2021, at 12pm PT/1pm MT/2pm CT/3pm ET. Industry panelists will be Mike Dairyko, Senior Manager of Data Science for the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club, and Chang-Hsin Lee, Staff Data Engineer for ezCater. The event will be moderated by Charlotte Eisenberg, Data Developer at Sports Reference, LLC. Register for the Zoom event here!
