Jari Iinatti

Dr.Sc. (Tech.)

Professor, Head of Unit
Telecommunications Theory


I received M.Sc., Lic. Tech. and Dr. Tech. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Oulu (UoO) in 1989, 1993 and 1997. I have been working at UoO as research scientist (1989-1997), acting professor (1997-2002) and professor (since 2002). I have been heading Department of Communications Engineering and Centre for Wireless Communications (CWC) (2014-2015), degree programme of electrical engineering (2012-2014 and 2016-2017), as well as International Master Programme in Wireless Communications Engineering (2010-2017). Currently I'm head of CWC – Networks and Systems (since 2016) and Education Dean at the Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (since 2018).
