steels, physical metallurgy, mechanical metallurgy, high-strength steels, microstructures
I have experienced in steel business management, production, mechanical properties, and applications, including strong competence in managing research and development organisations. Since 2016, I have headed the Materials and Mechanical Engineering unit and Centre for Advanced Steels Research (CASR). I am a member of European Steel Technology Platform (ESTEP), Association of German Steel Manufacturers (VDEh), the Association of Finnish Steel and Metal Producers, International Institute of Welding (IIW), and Chairman of the Welding Society of Finland. However, physical metallurgy of ultrahigh-strength steels is my interest and hobby on which I have more than 170 publications.
