Jean-Paul Maalouf es un consultor estadístico senior que trabaja en Addinsoft desde 2014. Es doctor en biología y tiene una amplia experiencia en la enseñanza de la estadística, una actividad que ha estado practicando intensamente desde 2012. Entre los que se han beneficiado de su actividad formativa se encuentran los principales institutos de investigación franceses (INRA, CNRS, INSERM, CIRAD, varias universidades), así como empresas privadas de todo el mundo. Sus métodos de enseñanza se basan en la explicación de las herramientas estadísticas desde una perspectiva más conceptual que matemática. La estadística llega a ser muy fácil de entender para los usuarios que no necesariamente tienen experiencia en matemáticas y necesitan llegar a ser operativos rápidamente.
