Swinburne University is committed to high quality research and research training that is relevant to national goals, and is of social, commercial and cultural value to the community. Swinburne's approach to developing its research profile is through focused growth in fields of research strength applicable to industry and community needs.

Swinburne aims to ensure the research and professional activities of its staff in order to:

  • Assist industry and the community in meeting state and national priorities;
  • Enrich the cultural life of the Australian community; and
  • Foster international cooperation.
As a small university, Swinburne seeks to concentrate and broaden its research effort in selected areas of excellence.

As part of the Centre for Mathematical Modelling, Swinburne Sports Statistics provides expertise in the collection, analysis and provision of quality statistical information on sport. Through research via mathematical modelling, we add value by interpretation and analysis thereby creating more meaningful statistics. Using computer and statistical modelling we make the statistics work: providing outcomes such as computer predictions of match results, odds generation for sports gambling, objective player and team ratings, measurement of home advantages, performance prediction, game simulations and tactical evaluation. We provide the media and public with an objective analysis of sporting issues with a sound statistical basis.
