BSc [Hons] Creative Computing

I'm a final year Creative Computing student with an interest in Data Visualisation and Data Analytics. I also have experience using various languages like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Vuejs and Reactjs. I have a particular interest in sports e.g. football, rugby and American football and how data and technologies are used in sport. Outside my studies I have a job working with Flutter Entertainment as a football trader for the Paddy Power/Betfair brands.

Project Description

For my project I developed a Football Data Visualisation application using R and Shiny. The app allows users to view football player data and statistics as interactive data visualisations. The first feature allows users to view player data in a scatter plot, the second feature allows users to view a "Pizza Chart" which shows how well a player is performing across a number of metrics.
All data for this project are from FBref.
