Projects per year
Having background in mechanical engineering, I'm now completing my doctoral degree at Aalto university in structural analysis of cellular microarchitectural structures.
I enjoy predicting and explaining the reality with physics, mathematics and digital tools. I also tend to approach things outside my expertice field, considering also visual, practical, commercial and financial aspects of the problem.
In my free time, I like playing and watching sports, such as floorball ('sähly'). I also enjoy spending time in the nature.
I'm specialiced in computational solid mechanics. My main tool is finite element simulation software (Ansys, Abaqus), but find important to be aware of on actual physics and computation algorithms behind the software. However, my approach to the problems is practice-oriented: "Does it work in the real world?"
I might be useful when someone, for example, needs to
- Predict the stresses, deformations and failure mechanisms in structure
- Find optimal structure candidates
- Screen out inappropriate structures, materials and tools
- Design something withouth accurate experimental data
My current projects are related to analysis of bio-based materials and structures. In addition, I've been studying cellular lightweight structures and their potential in sustainable packaging. Here are some interesting topics:
- Orthotropic and anisotropic materials
- Fibre network structures (e.g. paper)
- Composite structures
