In KMi, I work as a Research Fellow acting as a technical lead and a data scientist of OU Analyse Project (https://analyse.kmi.open.ac.uk). The project is focused on improving student retention at Open University using machine learning techniques. I am exploring how to best use OUAnalyse to teachers (Associate Lecturers) in order to better use data and analytics for improving student outcomes. Moreover, I am responsible fore design and the development of the Curriculum Analytics Tool (CAT) - the tool has been deployed in 2017 to help in the curriculum review. It is expected to facilitate data-informed decisions on the curriculum and finance planning in the future.

Keys: OU Analyse Project, Machine Learning, CAT (Curriculum Analytics Tool)
