Dear visitor, I’m glad that you are visiting my online space. Welcome 🤗Here you can find out about my current work, public talks, lecturing and past projects, too.

I am based in Helsinki, Finland and have a wide range of academic and professional history in the intersection of design, technology, culture and science. One could say that I am a creative professional in digital culture, an investigator of the human – technology relationships, behaviours and experiences. 

The latest project I worked on was at Aalto university, School of Science where I was the Creative Director of Visentools R2B project, which aims to create tools and methods for sense-building through visual communication and collaboration. Prior to that, I worked as an associate researcher the Cicero Learning – Brain, Learning and Technology research network at the Faculty of Educational Sciences at Helsinki University, on a project called CREDU- creating novel technologies of scalable and empowering learning. In there, I was leading a work package about the relations of ethics, data and design while researching the possibilities of using user data transparently for tailoring ethical learning technology practices in existing and developing learning applications. 

I am also associated with the MIT MediaLab, where I worked as a visiting scholar at the Digital Learning and Collaboration Studio in the spring 2022.

In addition, I’m finalising my PhD (exp. 2023) in Emdodied Interction Design with  Prof. Teemu Leinonen as my supervisor at the MediaLab at Aalto University, Finland. At Aalto University I’ve been lecturing a University-wide course called Design for the Posthuman Era – Critical explorations on the ethics of emerging technologies and I am a member of the academic nordic network – Design and Posthumainsm
