Biography

Aalto University School of Business
Associate Professor, Vice Dean, New Media design and learning

I practice design research in the field of New Media, especially related to applications, solutions and services of e-learning, collaborative learning, collaborative group work and creative work. I do research in and lead the Learning Environments research group (LeGroup) of the Media Lab Helsinki, teach in the MA in New Media program and supervise doctoral research. I start and coordinate national and internation design, research and development projects related to my field of research. In the MA in New Media program I teach (1) Introduction to Media Art and Culture and (2) New Media Concepts for the Third Sector study project. I also supervise and evaluate MA thesis and doctoral dissertations. In 2014 - 2019 half of my time is dedicated to directing the school's research (both artistic and scientific research) as a Vice Dean.

BACKGROUND

I started my academic journey in early 1990's as a student in the School of Education, University of Tampere. I did my undergraduate and master studies in educational studies, sociology and international relations. I also did some computer science and hypermedia courses. My MA thesis was a comparative study of the educational ideologies of the World Bank and the Governments of Zambia. In 1990's along my studies I did some media things: DJ, radio and when the graphical web browser was released more and more Web. Before the Web I did some Gopher -pages, too. Actually my radio program at the unviersity's radio station was probably one of the first radion shows (if not the first) with online presence (Gopher). In 1997-1998 I was a researcher in the Digital Media Institute at the Tampere University of Technology developing an online learning environment for secondary education. In 1998 I moved to Helsinki and soon found myself from the Media Lab Helsinki (University of Art and Design, TAIK). The Media Lab was just four years old and there I got a chance to start the Learning Environments research group (LeGroup). Since then the research group has coordinated number of research projects funded by The European Commission in the Information Society Technologies (IST) framework, Nordic Council of Ministers, UNESCO, the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation and corporate sponsors. After joning Media Lab Helsinki I decided to do there the MA in New Media program and also doctoral disertation. Doctoral research I did partly in South Africa and later in California. In South Africa I was a visiting research at the Meraka Institute of the Council for Scientific and Insutrial Research (CSIR). In California I was a visiting fellow at the SRI International. In addition to the work at the academia, in 1990's and early 2000, I found two companies and did consulting for ICT and media companies. I still do that sometime.
