Biography

Tuomas received M.Sc. degree in communications engineering from the University of Oulu (UoO) in 2010. He has been working as a researcher in several projects on medical ICT and military communications fields at the UoO since 2009. Currently, he is an internal project manager in an European project in the defence field and leads work packages in two European projects. He is also pursuing towards a Dr.Sc. (Tech.) degree focusing his studies on Medium Access Control protocols for wireless healthcare scenarios. He has been an active contributor in ETSI standardization since 2013 and is currently a rapporteur in three Work Items in ETSI TC SmartBAN.
