Erik Allen

Founder, Pit Rho

Erik Allen got into sports analytics while doing his PhD at MIT, and has been involved in the community for nearly 10 years. His number crunching roots are in baseball, where he contributed substantially to the understanding of DIPS. Since then, he co-founded a materials coating company and brought his quantitative firepower to both start-ups and the Fortune 50. He likes that Minnesota was named “The Most Hipster State in the U.S.A.”, but only ironically.
