Nina Graves
Idealist • Process Enthusiast • Researcher

I am a PhD candidate at the Chair of Process and Data Science (PADS) at RWTH Aachen University. Apart from its high productivity, the PADS group is full of great individuals and has an amazing atmosphere. This demanding yet incredibly supportive environment is a reason I do not regret my decision to go into academia in the slightest.  

My research lies in the field of Process Mining - the data-driven analysis and improvement of processes. I work on developing new algorithms and methods to support an increase in the sustainability of business processes. As sustainability assessment requires a holistic process consideration, my research is based on object-centric Process Mining, which allows a multi-perspective view of a process. In this context, I work on enhancing Process Mining's capabilities for analysing material flows within and across company boundaries - logistical processes are crucial in increasing sustainability.
