I am a theoretical physicist focusing in quantum simulations, information and devices. My research methods combine analytic, numerical and collaborative experimental approaches. In 13 of my 15 published articles I have the leading author status as the first or the second author.

I got my PhD degree in 2013 from University of Oulu. From 2013 to 2016, I was as a Postdoctoral Associate at Yale University. In 2016, I came to Oulu and Aalto as postdoctoral researcher. Since 2018 I have been an academy research fellow in the project "Many-body localization and dissipation in arrays of superconducting transmon devices".

    I was as a Postdoctoral Associate in the research group of superconducting quantum devices, quantum information and condensed matter theory led by Prof. Steven Girvin at Yale University for 2,5 years. In this world-class research environment I was immersed in wide variety of topics on superconducting circuits and quantum information. I actively contributed in the theoretical and experimental high-quality research with superconducting circuit based quantum devices and quantum information. I expanded my scientific horizon by learning about novel topics of condensed matter physics, such as the many-body localization, in regular high-level physics colloquiums and seminars.
