Daniele Di Mitri is Research Group Leader at EduTech group at DIPF Leibniz Institute for Research and Information in Education. Daniele holds a BSc degree in Computer Science and an MSc degree in Artificial Intelligence. In 2015, he took part in the Extreme Blue excellence research programme at IBM Amsterdam. Daniele received his PhD title at the OUNL (2016-2020) in Learning Analytics and Wearable sensors support. In his PhD research, he investigates the potentials of collecting and analysing multimodal during physical interactions for automatic feedback and human behaviour analysis. His PhD project, the Multimodal Tutor, he received the Martin Wolpers Award as best PhD project in the field of Technology-Enhanced Learning 2018. He is member of the CrossMMLA Special Interest Group of the Society of Learning Analytics Research and he is the chair of the Learning Analytics Hackathon (LAKathon) series.
