Finally, you will learn about how data science can prepare you for future roles and where the sports industry could take you!

After graduation, he spent a few years trading currency options at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange during the day while coaching high school golf and basketball in the evenings. While pursuing his Master's degree in Computer Science from DePaul University in Chicago, Charlie took a full time role as a teacher and technology coordinator with the high school where he was coaching. He completed his Master's degree in 2012 after finishing a thesis on using computer vision to track the movement of the basketball in videos of high school basketball games. This led to Charlie joining STATS LLC as a computer vision engineer working on the SportVU tracking system.
