Short bio

Teemu Myllylä, Adjunct Professor/Docent, D.Sc. (Tech.), studied at the University of Oulu, Technical University of Berlin and Humboldt University of Berlin. Currently, he is the leader of the Health and Wellness Measurements research group in the Optoelectronics and Measurement Techniques Unit, University of Oulu, Finland. In addition, he participates in the Biophotonics group, located in the same unit, as well as in the Oulu Functional Neuroimaging Research Group, in the Medical Research Center Oulu, Finland. His research focuses on development of biomedical measurement methods and instrumentations to study human physiology, such as blood pressure, blood flow and metabolism, especially in the brain. Several developed methods have been utilised in medical research, particularly in magnetic resonance imaging environment. He collaborates closely with many university hospitals and medical research centers. Furthermore, he participates in the teaching of a number of courses held at the University of Oulu.
