About Alice Sweeting

Dr Alice Sweeting completed her PhD in 2016, with Victoria University, Netball Australia and the Australian Institute of Sport. Alice’s PhD focused on the use of radio-frequency tracking and data mining techniques to profile the movement patterns of elite and junior-elite netball athletes.

Since November 2016, Alice has been a Research Fellow with Victoria University and co-appointed with the Western Bulldogs Football Club. Alice currently co-supervises six postgraduate students who are completing their PhD projects on kicking detection, player tracking and analytics in AFL.

Alice’s own research area is primarily in using wearable sensors and sport analytics to profile athletic performance.
