Elle Yuan Wang



My name is Elle Yuan Wang. I’m a PhD student studying Cognitive Studies with a concentration in Intelligent Technologies and Learning Analytics at Columbia University. I spend most of my time modeling learner behavior and motivation within Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs).


Welcome to take a look at my Projects. I’m also a professional translator/interpreter and journalist. Currently, I write for Voyage , a fashion and travel magazine. Counter-intuitively, I also work with the Chinese editions of Scientific American and Nature magazines.


I was a 2011 Social Media Research Fellow with Mayor Bloomberg’s Office; Marketing and Communication Officer of Columbia Technology Ventures; Special Projects Officer with Columbia University Office of the President; Music Ambassador with Carnegie Hall; Youth Sub-committee Member of UN Department of Public Information; Strategy, Insights, and Research Intern with MTV Networks, Correspondent with China Daily...

I care about anything related to enhancing people’s learning experience. And I believe that is the way to achieve happiness.
