Inspired by the asset-pricing literature, the Soccer-Factor-Model (SFM) is an attempt to determine a soccer player’s “alpha”, i.e. his/her inherent skill. In this application, “skill” is defined as a player’s probability to score a goal after accounting for factors that are actually to be attributed to his team’s out- or under-performance vis-à-vis the opponent. In that sense, the SFM tries to answer the question, whether a player’s observed goals are an over- or understatement of his “true” skill/ability.
Max is a Post-Doc at Università Bocconi, specializing in finance/economics. With research interests in climate econometrics, machine learning, macroeconomic forecasting, and asset-pricing, Max combines expertise in these areas to drive innovation and uncover valuable insights.
