Patrick WangBio:

My name is Patrick Wang, and I am a PhD in Computer Science from Université Grenoble-Alpes, France.

During my doctoral thesis, I was a member of MeTAH, a team of Grenoble Informatics Laboratory. There, I was supervised by  Pierre Tchounikine and Matthieu Quignard.

My PhD project concerned classroom orchestration and Technology-Enhanced Learning. Teachers often encounter difficulties while managing their classrooms and the introduction of software applications highlights these difficulties. My research consisted in designing and developing a software framework which support teachers in the orchestration of their classrooms once instantiated.

During the last two years of my doctoral programme, I also was a teaching assistant at the Ecole Nationale de l’Enseignement Supérieur, in the EECS department. I taught Mathematics and C-programming at an undergraduate level.

As of now, I am still a member of the MeTAH team. My doctoral contract runs until late September 2016. However, I already secured a position as a Research Associate in the UK which should start at the beginning of October 2016. I am currently expecting their final offer and will be updating this paragraph as soon as I receive it.
