Data Scientist @ Catapult Sports

As a Data Scientist at Catapult Jerome is responsible for delivering innovative solutions in how data shapes sport performance. During his PhD and postdoc in the field of molecular biology applied to exercise physiology and anti-doping, Jerome researched new ways to detect illicit performance-enhancing drug in sport using genetic technologies. During this period, Jerome started using data science tools and techniques to help him analyse the genetic data and make proof-of-principle predictions. He then went on to deepen his data science knowledge at an intensive bootcamp before starting his job at Catapult in April 2015, combining his passion for sports and data science.
