New Team Member: Baptiste Blouin
Baptiste is the successful applicant of the doctoral fellowship that the ENP-China project opened in late spring 2019 in NLP (Natural Language Processing). He is currently enrolled in the Ph.D. program doctoral in computing at Aix-Marseille University, where he obtained his master degree in artificial intelligence and machine learning in 2019.
His personal interest in research, and more precisely in the field of the Natural Language Processing as well as his end-of-study internship on Chinese named entities in historical data led him to start a dissertation with the ENP project. His research topic is centered on networks between historical events and the persons related to them. Baptiste will work under the supervision of Prof. Benoît Favre at the LIS Laboratory.
Baptiste presents an unusual profile as he spent most of his youth in Sub-Saharan and North Africa, which exposed him early to other cultures. No wonder he is now boldly taking a new jump toward China!
