Zach Pardos works as an NSF funded fellow at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. He is pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science with advisor Neil Heffernan in the field of Intelligent Tutoring Systems. Zach\'s research focuses on using advanced machine learning techniques, such as Bayesian Network, to create accurate models of learning that can detect effective tutoring content and predict student achievement.
