Brief Bio

Who am I? That is a very good question - one that I have been pondering myself for quite some time ...

I am currently a Doctoral Candidate in the School of Computing at the University of Eastern Finland.

I am also married and a proud father of two lovely girls.


My current research is based on the creation of a generic platform for adaptive context-aware expert systems. In other words, an adaptive context aware AI system.

Research Activity

My PhD advisor is Dr. Kinshuk:

 A little bit more

I am also an avid motorcyclist and play the guitar and bongo drums for fun - much the chagrin of those around me. Beyond that, when not at work, working on my research or raising my children, I sleep.
