Statsbomb Conference

In August 2019, I won the oppurtunity to present a research talk at the inagural Statsbomb football analytics conference. My proposal focused on Markov models of possession value when playing football, and incorporating a risk factor into these models.

I presented a 25 minute talk on my work at the conference in October 2019. Below is a list of resources related to the project.

White Paper

currently in the process of writing up a white paper based on the research. Will upload here when completed.

R Package

alongside the white paper, I am putting together an R package to easily reproduce the findings, and also extend into other similar models of possession value. The code can be found on Github
