I've created two wonderful courses at Aalto University, as well as a prototyping method, which have helped several innovative people develop startups and make business. My students have been actively patenting their student-projects, and I currently have several patents pending. I have collaborated with several international companies, such as Bang & Olufsen, Microsoft Research Cambridge and Nokia (several units), and been directly involved with startups originating from my research or teaching.
I've also created several prototypes over the years, focusing on tangible and ubiquitous computing, wearable technology, as well as enabling technologies, such as the bi-directional wireless power transfer. I have numerous publications on fields related to prototyping in human-centred design.
During 2017 Spring, I have collaborated with Finnish Patenting and Registry Office, to develop the provisional patenting system.
