Short Bio

I hold a PhD in Computer Sciences from the University Abderrahmane Mira (Bejaia, Algeria), as well as an Engineer degree in Computer Sciences from the University of Science and Technology USTHB (Algiers, Algeria) and a Magister degree in Computer Sciences from the University Abderrahmane Mira.

Currently, I serve as a research engineer at IMT Atlantique (Brest, France), where I am part of the MOTEL team. My research focus is on developing advanced analytical tools to enhance digital learning practices and improve the overall learning experience. Before my current role, I served as a full-time permanent researcher (MaƮtre de Recherche B) at the Algerian Research Center on Scientific and Technical Information CERIST.
