I work as a researcher (post-doc) and a teacher in software engineering at Aalto University. I am part of Software Process Research Group (SPRG) headed by prof. Lassenius. My work is funded by the department of CSE and EU FP7 project called U-QASAR
In 2011-2012, I was a post-doc in Software Engineering Research Group (headed
by prof. Runeson) at
Lund University, Sweden. The work
was funded by the ELLIIT project
In 2008-2011 I was a project-manager of ESPA research project at Aalto University.
In 2003-2008 my work was funded by SHAPE and SEMS research projects as well as SoSE graduate school.
