1. Dan Rosenheck, “Spring Forward: Understanding Spring Training Statistics” (2015)
Last year’s SSAC showcased work by Dan Rosenheck, who has had quite the year professionally. Leveraging his quantitative skills that brought his paper to our attention, Rosenheck became the data editor for The Economist, where he provides editorial oversight for all of the publication’s journalism efforts. This past year, his sports contribution included an analysis on signature significance in a baseball swing. Beyond the sports world, Rosenheck went to all sorts of analytical depths when publishing The Economists’ first ever ranking on the value of universities, and a comprehensive study of property taxes in New York and London.
The School’s research output in the last decade has been both significant and considerable, as testified by our AACSB accreditation in 2011. We take great pride in the fact that our faculty have contributed more than 150 articles to reputed academic and practitioner journals.
In the past few years, ISB faculty members have published over 60 papers in top-tier journals. Our faculty have received numerous coveted research grants awarded by premier academic institutions, research centres, corporate houses and reputed foundations such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Ford Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, WWF, McCombs School of Business, UT-Austin and others. These awards attest to the scope, depth and impact of the research conducted at the ISB.
