I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Center for Ubiquitous Computing located at the University of Oulu, Finland. My background is in designing and implementing solutions for companies in the healthcare business. I received my MSc in Computer Science and Information Networks from University of Oulu in 2016 and my PhD in mobile sensing in 2019.

In my PhD work, my focus was on ubiquitous computing and quantified-self (QS). Specifically understanding users of QS applications and technologies, such as wearable devices, and designing new methods to enable users with more efficiency.

My more recent work is focused on digital health and applying intelligent methods.
