I'm currently the Director of Data Science at STATS, where my goal is to maximize the value of the 35+ years worth of sports data we have. Previously, I was at Disney Research for 5 years, where I conducted research into automatic sports broadcasting using large amounts of spatiotemporal tracking data. Previous to that, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University/Department of Psychology at University of Pittsburgh conducting research on automatic facial expression recognition. I received my BEng(EE) from USQ and my PhD from QUT, Australia in 2003 and 2008 respectively. I was a co-author of the best paper at the 2016 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference and in 2017 was co-author of best-paper runner-up at the same conference. Additionally, I have won best paper awards at INTERSPEECH (2007) and WACV (2014) international conferences. My main research interests are in artificial intelligence and interactive machine learning in sporting domains.
