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 coauthored the paper “Longitudinal study on text entry by gazing and smiling” that was published at the 2016 Symposium on Eye Tracking Research & Applications (ETRA ‘16).
I presented the work we currently do on facial pacing and reanimating unilateral facial paralysis at a local event, the BioMediTech Research Day 2015. I uploaded the abstract and the presentation I made for the event. The presentation has short video clips of functional electrical stimulation of facial muscles.
My work on facial measurements is continuing in a project called Mimetic Interfaces (MIMEFACE). We develop technology to measure facial movements from one side of the face and to electrically stimulate them on the other. The target group for the technology is people suffering from unilateral facial nerve paralysis. My responsibilities in the project include hardware, software, and signal processing development.
I uploaded a presentation I gave last week related to my doctoral thesis work. My presentation was a part of an event that was organised for local companies that have interest in smartglasses, and technologies related to them. I used reveal.js for preparing the presentation.
I had the public defence of my doctoral thesis “Capacitive facial activity measurement”. My opponent was Massimiliano Zecca (personal website), Professor of Healthcare Technology at Loughborough University, United Kingdom. Media releases about the defence in English and Finnish were published by our university. I will receive my Doctor of Science in Technology degree next week.
