Data Engineer / Analyst

Dallas Mavericks


I work as a data engineer in the basketball analytics department at Dallas Mavericks. My main responsibility is creating and maintaining data pipelines from different sources to our internal database. I work closely with the front office, coaches, scouts and sports scientists to empower data-driven decision making.

I previously had a chance to help BBall-Index by developing and deploying multiple R-Shiny Applications for querying, visualizing and profiling NBA teams and players. I also worked at Soccerment in Milan, Italy, where I wrote pieces to explain concepts of soccer analytics in a succinct and understandable manner for the public. Additionally, I studied Italian in college and spent a summer in Siena, Italy, taking Italian language and culture classes before going to study in Italy.

In my spare time, you can find me watching my favorite team, Galatasaray, or shopping sneakers.
