Patrick WangBio:

My name is Patrick Wang, and I am an Associate Professor at the Institut Supérieur d’Électronique de Paris (ISEP), France. I joined the RDI research team, which is part of the LISITE lab. At ISEP, I am spending half of my activity teaching Computer Science to undergraduate and graduate students. The other half of my activity is dedicated to leading research projects on Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL).

Before that, I was a Research Associate at the Knowledge Media Institute, the Open University, UK. I worked with Prof. Enrico Motta and Dr. Francesco Osborne on topics spanning from Smart Cities to Bibliometrics and Scientometrics. The common point between these projects was the application of both supervised and unsupervised machine learning techniques.

I obtained my PhD in Computer Science in 2016 from Université Grenoble-Alpes, France. During my doctoral thesis, I was a member of MeTAH, a team within the Grenoble Informatics Laboratory. There, I was supervised by Prof. Pierre Tchounikine and Dr. Matthieu Quignard and workd on a project related to Technology-Enhanced Learning and Classroom Orchestration. In particular, I was interested in providing teachers with orchestration tools that would help them in managing TEL classroom activities where students are using mobiles devices such as tablets.
