Random Search Algorithms for Optimal Control, Doctoral dissertation
Integrated Passive Radio Frequency Filter and Multiplexer Designs, Master's Thesis
Kognitiivisen radion etuasteen mahdolliset suodatinteknologiat, Bachelor's Thesis
I have been working as a Data Scientist at Vincit since August 2018.
I was a PhD student at Aalto University in the Department of Computer Science between 2014 - 2018. My research concerned random search (Monte Carlo) methods for optimal control. The research also included machine learning.
I worked in the Antennas and radio frequency technology team at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. The work involved radio frequency hardware projects. The technologies that I worked with ranged from antennas and simple passive devices to radio frequency micro electro-mechanical components. I worked under the titles:
- Scientist, July 2014 - October 2014
- Research trainee, June 2013 - June 2014
- Research trainee, May 2012 - December 2012
I was an assistant at the course "Applied Probability and Statistics" in Aalto University. The course syllabus comprised the fundamentals of probability and statistics. I was an assistant on the course four times:
- Spring 2012
- Fall 2011
- Spring 2010
- Fall 2009
Early Work Experience
- Project engineer trainee, SRV, Summers 2009 and 2010
- Construction worker, Hartela, Summers 2006 and 2008
- Hamburger assembler, McDonald's, Summer 2007
- Janitor, DB Schenker, Summer 2004
Doctor of Science
I earned my doctorate from Aalto University in 2018. My research concerned random search methods for optimal control. The research also involved machine learning methods.
Master of Science with distinction
I earned my Master of Science degree in electrical engineering from Aalto University in 2014. I majored in signal processing and did a minor in computational science, i.e. my studies consisted mostly of programming mathematics heavy algorithms. The elective studies contained also radio engineering, and my master's thesis was about designing integrated radio frequency electronics.
Bachelor of Science with honours
I earned my Bachelors degree in electrical engineering from Aalto University in 2013. My major was electronics and I minored in mathematics. My bachelor's thesis was in the field of radio frequency electronics and it handled the possibilities of implementing tunable filter technologies.
Military service is obligatory to all male citizens of Finland. I completed my military service in July 2010 - July 2011 earning the rank of second lieutenant.
