Matthieu's Bio

Hi, I am Matthieu, I have a background in Data Science in the fields of Ecological Modeling and Education Data Mining. I did my Master in ecological modeling but quickly shifted to education. During my PhD at ENS Paris-Saclay, I worked on the topics of disengagement in MOOCs through the lens of learning analytics. As a post-doctoral fellow in Université Paris-Descartes, I specialised in the field of learning environment design. I now teach in the Bachelor in Data Science in Cergy Paris University. I am in charge of various classes ranging from statistics to machine learning and do my research in the field of Learning Analytics, mostly. Although I am based in Cergy Paris Université, working at Institut des Humanités Numériques, I work along with CRI researchers on learning analytics from various learning environments.
