Amit Sagar

Undergraduate Student, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
University of California, Berkeley

Amit is a 3rd year computer science major at UC Berkeley. His first experience in sports analytics came in high school when he won his fantasy football league by creating a program that ranked players using metrics including their historical performance and team’s strength of schedule. Since then, Amit’s become an avid NBA fan and loves to watch, play, and analyze basketball. In addition to analytics and computer science, Amit is interested in biology. He has spent the last two summers doing research in computational biology at the University of South Florida. Amit plans to eventually go to medical school, perhaps after working in software engineering, data science or biotechnology. He hopes his hometown team, the Magic, get more national TV games next year.
