Analyzing Pace-of-Play in Soccer using Spatio-Temporal Event Data

In this project, you will create and explore pace-of-play metrics in soccer and determine their effectiveness in predicting the outcome of a match. Through this process, you will learn to manipulate complex datasets, conduct spatio-temporal analysis and implement two different machine learning models. This project will culminate in a research paper or another method that displays the research results (i.e. Bookdown).
