Personal profile

Research interests

I received my M.Sc. degree in telecommunications from the University of Oulu in 2008. Working as a researcher at VTT, I have contributed to numerous national and international R&D projects which have studied and developed various dominating commercial communication technologies, including 3G/UMTS, 4G/LTE, WiMAX, and WiFi. During the past few years, I have also been involved in the Finnish national 5G test networks through the 5G Test Network Finland (5GTNF) coordination action. My current research interests include mobile network architectures, performance evaluation, and testing of wireless communication technologies in the context of 5G and beyond systems. I am currently working towards a Ph.D. focusing on virtualized and open RANs.
