Dr. Jennings is an executive in residence this fall at the Rhodes Information Initiative at Duke University. He is teaching a course in Sports Analytics that highlights student projects and guest lectures from prominent individuals in the analysis of the sports world. For work, he is an advisor to several startups, runs his own consultant firm, and is a contributor in the NSF-funded STEM Opportunities in Prison Settings (STEM-OPS). Otis sits on the board of Just Human Productions and the St. Mark's School of Texas and manages a grade-school math tutoring program that serves underprivileged youth.
