  • Conceptualize competitor analysis techniques

  • Prototype models and analysis routines which implement these analysis methods

  • Work with data acquisition and testing groups to develop proper instrumentation to validate data sources provide in track feeds. Quantify precision and accuracy of input data

  • Execute competitor performance characterizations to derive insight for race event reporting and guide long-term vehicle development projects

  • Collaborate with GM Motorsports Simulation, Data Analytics, Strategy, and Software Dev groups to derive an optimal architecture and implementation plan to build software and support for week-to-week production operation

Work with GM Internal groups and external partners

  • To understand analysis areas to target for greatest benefit

  • To answer open questions across all GM Motorsports groups, building group knowledge
