After studies in Geneva (TECFA) and Pittsburgh (LRDC) I joined EPFL in 2003 to coordinate eLearning projects and conduct research in the field of Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL). Starting 2013 I am responsible for MOOCs production at the Center for Digital Education (CEDE).
Specialties: Interaction analysis, research methods, statistical methods, prototyping, software development, pedagogical design.
Projects: Learning Companion (https://companion.epfl.ch/), Campus Analytics (https://campusanalytics.epfl.ch/), tangible augmented simulation (http://dualt.epfl.ch/page62923.html and http://www.simpliquity.com), dual eye-tracking for collaborative problem-solving.
Former Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies and former Member of the Editorial Board for the International Journal of Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (iJCSCL).
