Hi, I’m Avyay Varadarajan! I’m a high-schooler at Mission San Jose High School and I’m also the president of our school’s Sports Analytics Club. My favorite NBA team is the Lakers. In general, I enjoy applying statistics and machine learning to genomic and sports data.

I also enjoy iOS and open-source development. I was a winner of the 2020 Apple Swift Student Challenge and was a finalist in the 2018 Google Code-in competition (Google’s open-source programming competition for high schoolers).

This blog focuses on basketball analytics, helping to better understand the sport through the usage of data.
