Welcome. This site presents my professional activities in my former positions as a postdoctoral researcher at the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences and Engineering at Tampere University of Technology and at the Faculty of Medicine and Life Sciences at University of Tampere, Finland. You can check my LinkedIn profile for info on my current work.
I added the manuscript “Smile to Save It: Facial Expressions for Lifelogging” that my colleague presented at the 16th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia (MUM ‘17).
I uploaded an old video I made to demonstrate my doctoral thesis work three years ago. I didn’t publish it then because I wasn’t satisfied with the video technically, but who cares. The video shows how the capacitive measurement of facial movements operates in real time. Check it out.
I uploaded the papers “Stimulation waveform selection to suppress functional electrical stimulation artifact from surface EMG signals”, “Low-latency EMG onset and termination detection for facial pacing”, and “Artificial eye blink pacemaker - A first investigation into the blink production using constant-interval electrical stimulation”. The papers were published at the Joint Conference of the European Medical and Biological Engineering Conference (EMBEC) and the Nordic-Baltic Conference on Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics (NBC).
I was an author in three papers that got accepted to Joint Conference of the European Medical and Biological Engineering Conference (EMBEC) and the Nordic-Baltic Conference on Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics (NBC).
Our university did some organisational changes, and now we don’t have departments but only faculties. Since the beginning of 2017, my unit has been the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences and Engineering. Our entire faculty is also a part of the Institute of Biosciences and Medical Technology (BioMediTech), a joint institute between the two universities at Tampere, Finland.
Our case study “Combating Unilateral Facial Paralysis With Low-Latency Muscle Reanimation” received the 2016 Northern Europe NI Engineering Impact Award in the biomedical category. The awards ceremony was held on 28 November 2016 at RSA House, London, UK.
I presented some first results of the work we have done in suppressing the stimulation artifact in facial pacing. The presentation was a poster at a local event, the BioMediTech Research Day 2016. I uploaded the abstract and I will make the poster available at a later time.
