About me

Hi! I am Inès Blin, welcome to my personal website.

I am an industrial Ph.D. student, in collaboration between the Sony Computer Science Laboratories in Paris, France, and between the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in the Netherlands. I started my Ph.D. in October 2021, hired as part of the European project MUHAI. My background is in Mathematics and Computer Science.

My research focuses on building Narrative Structures from Knowledge Graphs. A narrative is here defined as a sequence of events, that are either temporally or causally linked altogether.

Topics of interest: AI, Knowledge Graphs, Semantic Web, Narratives, ML.

One of my hobbies is sport, especially running - when I am not injured - and more recently cycling. I am always looking for the nicest route in my surroundings!
